    Intimacy versus Isolation: in Erikson’s theory, the sixth stage of social & emotional development, in which young adults either make commitments to others or face a possible sense of isolation and consequent self absorption.
  2. The stage of social and emotional development that Erikson believed was typically experienced during middle adulthood
