continuous flux. This contrasts with the notion of generation identity developed in the present chapter, which suggests that identity emerges during a unique critical period in late adolescence/early adulthood--a period that is not (perhaps cannot be) repeated later in life. As there is no research into changes in generational identity, this chapter closes with a provocative suggestion: Once formed, generational identity cannot change. Instead, individuals can take various positions to their generation identity, they can evolve new plans and goals that take them away from the imperatives established during the period of identity formation, but the original generation-specific self remains as the self with which all later selves must be negotiated.
