The theory that best explains these changes for my 16 year old self is Erik Erikson's Theory of Psychosocial Development. According to Erikson's theory, during the teen stages, teenagers are faced with conflict of confusion versuses identity. (Cherry, 2018) At the age of 16, I was attempting to form my own identity and create my own self image; however, at the same time, independence was also something that became very important to me aside from having my own self image and identity. However, when trying to gain my own idependence and trying to create an identity for myself, the result ended up being some sort of conflict occurring. A lot of the body changes that occurred and experienced at the age of 16, also affected how my 16 year old self went through the Erikson's stage of "identity versuses confusion" as well as going into adulthood.
