    I would say college, but otherwise yes.

    Yeah, after graduating from college, and working for a few yrs, I went through about a 2-year Funk.

    Having to look Reality in the face and come to terms with it, and your place in it, and *whether* there's a place for you in it, and how to make that come about....IN's probably get hit the hardest on this, and may have the hardest time coping with it, but everyone may experience it to some degree.

    I also anticipate it'll pop itself up several more times over my lifetime. ;-) But I don't think it'll be as intense/all-consuming.

    Well maybe we should have our life expetancy cut, because I can't understand why people would want to waste time with a "crisis" with so many things to see and do in such a short life.

    I once talked to a psychologist I met who said that everyone goes through an identity crisis around 26-27 and around 27-28 you finally find who you truly are, and are 'emotionally mature' and the person you will likely be for the rest of your life...

    Just out of curiosity - did you talk to that psychologist when you were 26-27 years old?
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.

    It was...a year ago? So yeah, and no we were not discussing my life,..it came up when she was describing the cycles that people go through in life as she was advising someone else who was having a crisis

    I deliberately restructured my life and re-prioritized everything once I graduated with my masters, allowing my career to take a backseat to, well, everything else. I got exposed to a lot of new facets of my own personality and eventually became a pretty well-balanced person, but not after some major soul-searching.

    A crisis is a harsh and effective way of making shit turn into gold. Note: All materials, with the exception of gold, will turn into shit eventually, so for some people, it just takes longer for it to happen.
