Early Adulthood: Social and Emotional Development Chapter Fourteen Intimacy versus Isolation Erikson (1963) saw establishment of intimate relationships key “crisis” of early adulthood Young adults with firm identity seek to fuse relationships into marriage or abiding friendships After establishing a stable identity, a person is prepared to share meaningful love or deep friendship with others. 75% of college-age men and women rank a good marriage and family life as their primary adult goal. And yet, marriage or sexual involvement is no guarantee that intimacy will prevail. Many adult relationships remain superficial and unfulfilling. Failure to establish intimacy with others leads to a deep sense of isolation. Are Preferences Concerning Attractiveness Inborn? Evolutionary psychologists maintain certain traits more attractive due to reproductive advantage Cleanliness, good complexion, good hair, firm muscle tone Universally appealing to both sexes; possibly markers of reproductive potential Symmetrical men and women have a tendency to begin to have sexual intercourse at an earlier age, to have more sexual partners, to engage in a wider variety of sexual activities, and to have more one-night stands.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
