1. Autonomous identity (being able to say you can do things yourself)
2. Gender identity: (I'm a girl!)
3. Sexual identity

With the development of speech, the child must start expressing his feelings rather than showing them. This transition is supported by the parents. (Example: saying you're angry instead of throwing a toy at your parent)
Ultimate Sexual Identity occurs by age 18 and shapes.....
1. From which sex and in what way they will seek sexual gratification
2. In what way the person prohibits this gratification based on rules from the family, religion, society or absence of rules

1. Imitation and identification with liked-sex heterosexual parent
2. Discovery of anatomical sexual differences between boys and girls (2-4 years), at the same time as the kid is realizing what death is
