In many cases, people may be forced by external circumstances to make decisions that they would not have made if such circumstances did not present themselves. The results of such decisions can either have a positive or negative impact on the lives of an individual. Such a case is well presented in the story A &P by John Updike where the major character, Sammy is portrayed to be rebellious. His rebellion appears to have more disadvantages than advantages as it complicates his life in many cases, which leads him into making uninformed decisions. It is, therefore, true to say that Sammy's rebellion in the John Updike's A & P is more futile than heroic and only makes negative complications in his life.

If an individual does not choose to make a decision of how they are going to live, then he does not hold his life as a value. Choices are important and if a person does not make one, good or bad, you are choosing to let accomplishment slip by. The values one holds for themself shows the type of person they want to

Transference is the psychological phenomenon where it redirects emotions and feelings from one person to another. In addition, transference is the representative of a relationship from childhood.

As a result, a child’s emotion can impact him/herself negatively towards the future.
Introduction Erik Erikson’s psychosocial stage of initiative versus guilt as well as B.F. Skinner’s operant conditioning within behaviorism would be the theories that best describe the given scenario. Initiative vs. Guilt At this stage, it is known that children assert themselves more frequently and according to Bee (as cited in Thatcher, 2011) it is a “time of vigor of action and consists of behaviors that the parents may see as aggressive". This stage also sees the child wanting to initiate and complete his/ her own actions for a purpose.

A mastery experience is when a person is convinced they have personal control over a situation (Bandura, 1997). A sense of mastery can be damaged when an individual is subjected to a sexually coercive experience and leads to increased levels of helplessness and ability to cope in such situations (Benight & Bandura, 2004). An individual’s sense of mastery to be able to control coercive encounters can be improved by skill development to boost an individual’s sense of self-efficacy (Schwarzer, 2014).

Erikson believed that development was both qualitative and quantitative and that nature determined the sequence of the stages (Sharkey, 1997). In Conclusion, Erikson believed that successful completion of each stage results in a healthy personality and the acquisition of basic virtues.
