dc.description.abstractErik Erikson’s theory on psychosocial development studies how, ‘‘personality develops in a predetermined order through eight stages of psychosocial development, from infancy to adulthood.’’ (McLeod, 2018) Through the stages, the fifth stage specifically, ‘‘occurs during adolescence, from about 12-18 years. According to Shamdasani, ‘‘As we learn from this meticulously researched and richly documented study, Erik Erikson was born to Karla Abrahamsen, who was Jewish and Danish. He never knew who his father was, and uncovering the secret of his paternity became a lifelong quest.’’ (Shamdasani, 2000) Erikson never acknowledges who his father was and was left in the unknown. The fact that Erikson never learnt about his biological father and was left with questions could be trace as the cause behind this theory and curiosity. Moreover, the secret and mystery behind his biological father prompt the rise of questions and desire to uncover ideas behind identity and how a person develops. Especially, the fifth stage deals with identity against role confusion which influences the researcher.en
