This is one of Erik Erikson\'s stages which is stage 6: Intimacy vs. Isolation. It describes what having intimacy means as well as isolation. It also shows the causes that can lead to having one of these. It also describes how you are as a person if you have too much of the positive side (maladaptation) or having too much of the negative side (malignancy) and the effects it can have on you. It is a really interesting stage that can teach you a lot you did not know. Hope you find it as interesting and learn more about Erikson\'s stage.
