yes, what is it about 20-somethings?

A friend on facebook posted this article on her wall and I think it’s fascinating – it equates the ‘discovery’ or psychological defining of adolescence to what’s appearing now – the shifting and apparent elongation of the transition to adulthood.

I find the last line of the article quite heartening: “If it really works that way, if this longer road to adulthood really leads to more insight and better choices, then Arnett’s vision of an insightful, sensitive, thoughtful, content, well-honed, self-actualizing crop of grown-ups would indeed be something worth waiting for.”
