Generativity

Generativity

According to Erik Erikson’s theory of adolescent development, people at certain ages have the impulse to become more productive and do things more “worthwhile” in their lives. For example, a young adult may feel that it is time to get married, have a family, and raise children; they may feel the need to start doing work that is more fulfilling and creative, etc. These feelings of generativity are most prominent during middle adulthood.
