Adolescently Troubles

‘A young person has an uncertain nature. He cannot see his own possibilities, and when it comes to understanding which guidelines he needs, he doesn’t know where to begin. A fully positive identification with the older generation has always been an exception, because the younger generation always wants at least something new. It appears that – often in our time – even the older generation is psychologically uncertain, which makes it even harder for the younger generation to finds its way, considering they receive positive nor negative guidelines.’

– Bühler C. 1962. Psychologie in de Moderne Wereld [Psychology in the Modern World] Amsterdam, The Netherlands: Elsevier (1971) p. 229
