Adults may also satisfy their need to be generative through caregiving and employment (Berger, 2016). Adults often ask themselves during this stage of development "Whom or What can I care for?". Adults often feel the need to needed and so they often try to create, care for what has been created, and try to contribute to the next generation.

Personality makes us who we are and it plays a significant role in influencing most of our daily decisions such as what we choose to do for a living, who we choose to be our friends, our romantic partners and how we interact with our family (About.com). However, the question still remains about what personality is?

For instance, the movie “As Good as It Gets” comprises of several characters with different personalities, offering an ideal arena to analyse each character by the different theories of personality.
After analyzing the “looking-glass self” theory by Cooley and the presentation of “self” by Goffman, I believe both theories are very similar. In the “looking-glass self” theory, Cooley believes that an individual builds their self-perception based off of the daily interaction with other individuals. He also believes that the way individuals act or express themselves is influenced by the way other individuals view them as a person. Similarly, the “self” theory by Goffman also explains that self- identity is formed through our actions from everyday living and the individuals whom are involved. I believe that my self-perception fits into both of these theories.
