Predictors of identity development of pre-university college students: Case summaries
Maneesha Bhatt and Lata Pujar
In-depth interviews were performed with 11 Pre-University College Students (Dharwad and Tanakpur PUC students, 16-18 years). Three questions were probed viz., firstly, how do you perceive yourself as an individual? Secondly, how far your identity has played an important role in your life? Thirdly, can you narrate some of the factors (life-events and experiences) which has its influence on your identity? The results of the study highlighted that parental pressure and their lack of support results in low identity development of PUC students. On the other hand, students who got parental support and motivation developed positive identity. Friends also acted as a boon for an individual overall identity development. Overall, it was concluded that identity development during late adolescence consists of integrative issues where parents and friends play a specific and important role.
