Life Cycle & Development

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 behaviors. By understanding these stages a person may understand the reason for a specific MLCer's behaviors. The description of stage is followed by a review of that stage in the context of a midlife regression.

Jungian & Myers-Brigg Typology

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.

Midlife Crisis & Personality Types

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.
