Overview of the Identity Status Scoring Criteria

  • Alan S. Waterman


There is no standard form for the identity status interview, and the material in this book is not intended to define a standard format. Different investigators have chosen from among a variety of domains in which to assess identity and have varied the number and level of complexity of the questions. The principal determinants used in creating the interview have been the research hypotheses under investigation, the age and sex of the participant samples studied, and the academic background and experience of the people employed as interviewers.
