TLDR
4 modes of reacting to the late adolescent identity crisis were described, measured, and validated; those in the status characterized by adherence to parental wishes set goals unrealistically high and subscribed significantly more to authoritarian values.
Measuring Eriksonian Development in the Adult: The Modified Erikson Psychosocial Stage Inventory
TLDR
The construct validity was indicated by positive correlations between chronological age and the attributes associated with adulthood, an increase in mean generativity and ego integrity levels with age, and an association between the strength of attributes and participation in regular exercise.
Empirical validation of Erikson's theory of identity crises in late adolescence.
TLDR
Ego identity processes crystallize in late adolescence as postulated by Erikson's psychosocial theory of ego epigenesis as well as a significant negative correlation between ego identity and anxiety offered additional construct validity for the Dignan Ego Identity Scale.
A personality measure of Erikson's life stages: the Inventory of Psychosocial Balance.
TLDR
Subsequent administrations of the IPB to various samples indicate adequate internal consistency and high test-retest reliability; significant correlations with the California Psychological Inventory (CPI) Social Maturity Index; consistent Q-sort portraits of high-scoring and low-scoring women; negligible correlations with test taking response styles, intelligence, and measures of psychopathology; and moderate developmental trends.
