I've never really questioned my religion. If it's right for my family it must be right for me.
Regarding my career choice: a. I haven't really settled on a career and I'm just taking whatever jobs are available until something good comes along.
The Ethics of Risk Management: a Post-Crisis Perspective
I'm still trying to decide where my career interests lie and actively thinking about what jobs will be right for me. I thought a little about my career, but there's never really any question since my parents said what they wanted for me. It took me a while to figure it out, but now I really know that I am on the right career path. My views are identical to those of my family. What has worked for them will obviously work for me. I've never really seriously considered men's and women's roles. It just doesn't seem to concern me. I've spent some time thinking about men's and women's roles and I've decided what works best for me.
There are so many ways to define men's and women's role; I'm trying to decide what will work for me. Adding up your totals, you may have a mix of the four identity statuses, but it's likely you lean more toward one than another. The areas you might want to address in your own development right now are those for which you scored diffuse or foreclosed.
People in the moratorium status, as long as they don't stay there forever, simply need more time or perhaps the chance to continue their exploration before they're forced to make a choice. The problem with the diffuse status is that the longer you float on these important areas, the less likely it is you will shore up your sense of self enough to handle your future developmental challenges. For example, it is difficult to establish true intimacy if your identity is weak.
In the areas for which you rate as foreclosed, you can benefit from taking a step back and engaging in some serious exploration. Continuing on the path set for you by your family can lead to later discontent; the path through adulthood I call the " straight and narrow. Constantly remaining in moratorium can also be detrimental in different ways, particularly if the individual's continued explorations lead to tumultuous ups and downs. In contrast to these three negatively oriented trajectories, people who continually evaluate their commitments and make adjustments to achieve greater realization of their identities "authentic road" are most likely to achieve fulfillment throughout their lives.

This quiz, though brief, can give you a quick snapshot of where you stand on a developmental task that maintains its centrality in your personality and ability to adapt to your life's challenges. You can also use this tool to help advise your own teenagers, students, advisees, and clients to provide them with a sense of where they may need to move up or down the exploration or commitment scales.
Keep your mind open, but not too open, toward change. Your identity can adapt to whatever developmental tasks come your way. I recently graduated from college and have been going through the moratorium identity in terms of career for about a year and a half now. Excited and enthusiastic about the working world upon graduation, I ventured out with my degree clasped in my hand and snagged me a minimum-wage job at a sporting goods store. After four months of working there I was depressed and very, very unhappy. I couldn't figure out how my coworkers seemed okay working a job where after bills, rent, and buying food there was very little money to save up for anything else!
Realizing the job was making my life a living hell and I was getting nowhere fast, I quit and moved back home with my parents. I took a month or two to nurse myself back to health and happiness. I found a bearable job just to make some money. Since then I've been trying to figure out what would make me happy career-wise. Its been really frustrating and embarrassing at times, but I'm hoping I will figure out a career that will give me lifelong happiness and satisfaction.
My goal: Identity Achievement. My means of figuring it out: Exploration.
Competing interest statement
What tasks are involved in getting through the moratorium identity status? Can one speed the process up? Or is it just an identity status that progresses on its own time? Another identity can develop during diffusion called "negative identity". This identity is defined by "being what one is not" and is quite rebellious.
An example: the minister's son who is a crazy drunken, smoking, atheistic, womanizer. Can one develop that identity when in the moratorium phase? I have always had my own thoughts and never followed the crowd. At age 65, I am a freshman because I wrote about my life and won a scholarship.
I was standin' up and talkin' back and have always known I was here for a reason and that is to make a difference in the world. There's a big, gaping area far more important than politics left out Race , ethnicity, heritage. What am I? Therefore, who am I? In this, the answer is They say something I don't believe it I'm not allowed to explore I'm not allowed to know.
Bad enough to slit my wrists over.
Lost Sense Of Self & The Ethics Crisis paperback
I know this was posted in but let me tell you that I know what you're feeling. Not getting into details but I live in a country where I don't belong, a religion where I don't belong and no ethnicity at all, even I speak three languages and i'm a daughter of two people who are very different in race, ethnicity, religion.
And I don't belong to anyone. I have a hard time in everything. I don't commit to anything. I have no sense of self no confident. And I am going to quit university. I've always felt out of place and my life is such a blur I always think about suicide I never knew that this will affect me so much but I guess it did After another day of kicking himsekf in the nuts yet again for floating in moratorium, he seeks solace in the psych test Like, the moment you read it you realize it.
I really liked this article many of us are familiar with the term and may have an idea of what it means. Identity crisis is defined as "the failure to achieve ego identity during adolescence. That is where identity crisis comes from. After going through adolescence into adulthood, you should have an idea of who we are. Not knowing who you are, where you belong, or where you may go, this is considered a identity crisis. This article was very informative and helpful in understanding the definition of identity crisis. This was a great article and really helped me, however brief it was.
Thank you for sharing such valuable content on the Internet! Wish for achievement and get rid of this moratorium.
I am I have been two years with moratorium. My brain gets heated and stagnant when i talk myself though i don't want it. I am good at science but mathematics slows my mind. I am one of the toppers of my class. Can any of you brothers and sisters help me with a piece of genuine advice???? I just wanted to thank you for that little quiz. It really helped and gave me a more proper bearing on where I stand and hopefully where I need to go from here. This article didn't help me and left me even more confused. I am about to just give up in life. Thanks for nothing. Thank you so much for this article!
Yes, the quiz was extremely helpful! I am definitely the moratorium variety. At 55 years old I realize this is probably a big factor in my feeling like I'm going crazy. The racing, swirling thoughts ping ponging around in my head.
