Abstract

Data for 134 female and 135 male CaucasianProtestant college students was used to develop a pathmodel of psychosocial development. For both genders,identity encompassed both personal competence and social connection and intimate relationships served asa bridge between the private and social self. Among men,perspective-taking was a primary motivation forgenerative involvement whereas among women empathic concern motivated generative involvement whichin turn enhanced personal self-worth. Among women,perspective-taking was an outcome of social identity andamong men empathic concern followed perspective-taking. The homogeneity of the conservative religioussample restricted the range of moral/faith responsesresulting in non-significant associations with moraljudgement and faith reasoning.
