This is an introduction to the stages of human development as outlined by Erik Erikson. The purpose of this series is to understand the stages and series of developmental accomplishments a person needs to have achieved for a smooth midlife transition. An imbalance in any stage indicates different issues and tasks for the midlife transition and may result in different behaviours. By understanding these stages a person may understand the reason for a specific MLCer's behaviours. The description of stage is followed by a review of that stage in the context of a midlife regression.
This series begins with an introduction to Jungian Typology which was expanded through the work of Isabel Briggs-Myers and Katheryn Briggs and is known through the MBTI, the Myers Brigg (Personality) Type Indicator. The relevance of this is because a person's less dominant type functions may surface at midlife. Overuse of dominant functions, at the expense of the lesser functions in earlier adulthood may lead to a transition of crisis levels. The MBTI has 16 total personality types. These can be grouped into eight distinct function-attitudes. This series reviews these eight groups in general followed by a review of each at midlife.
In their book Men at Midlife, Michael Farrell and Stanley Rosenberg identified 4 categories of midlife men influenced by circumstances, upbringing, training and experience and based on how they handle stress and relate to the world. They interviewed and administered a variety of tests to 322 men between 38 and 48 to reach their conclusions. This series reviews their work and reinterprets it for a crisis level context.
