Erikson App Erikson Application Assignment Ibrahim Sylla Cecil County Community College
Erikson App 2 Abstract The purpose of this assignment is to apply a major theory of psychological development to my own life. For this assignment, I will write a paper focusing on Erikson’s eight psychosocial stages in my own development.
Erikson App 3 Stage one: Trust and Mistrust I believe that my needs were met as an infant. I was born in west Africa and the culture is very family based so my mother wasn’t the only one tending to my needs which meant that my needs were met in a dependable and consistent manner by many different caregivers. I do believe that I have a sense of security and predictability, but this is also caused by issues because I used to trust anyone and I learned the hard way that you can’t count on everyone. I have reached a healthy balance where I don’t trust people unless they have earned my trust. stage two: Autonomy vs. Shame and doubt I don’t really remember this part of my life but my parents said that I was a very outgoing kid, and I would often try and do things that older children struggled with and I was very advanced for my age. This made sense to me because I do have the ability to follow through with my decisions and actions.
