2Neo Freudian: Erik EricksonPersonality is something that is very complicated to assess, and deciding whichpersonality trait fits you, and others. For this paper we will look at Erick Erickson’s psychosocialdevelopment theory.Erick Erickson while influenced by Sigmund Freud, his view of personality was verydifferent. Freud believed that childhood experiences, and things that took place during theirchildhood, made up their personality. Erickson however disagreed with that, he felt that therewere eight stages of life that every individual goes through that makes up their personality, whichwere cultural, social, and environmental.The one that relates to my personal life is Intimacyversus isolation. Erickson felt that it was important to develop close, committed relationshipswith other people, doing so plays a critical role in a person’s emotion well-being (Cherry, 2020).At the same time you also must give the same to the other person in order for it to be successful.Isolation takes place when there is a poor relationship either with your spouse, or family, no deepintimacy, few or no friends, and weak social support (Cherry, 2020). When there is a lack of this,individuals will struggle to be intimate with their spouse or partner, and not able to have realrelationships with family and friends.When it comes to intimacy versus isolation, some people are more intimate than others.
