Erikson’s eighth stage of psychosocial development occurs from age 65 until death.
When reflecting on life, those who feel proud of their accomplishments will feel a sense of integrity. Successful completion of this stage means looking back with few regrets and an overall feeling of life satisfaction. Failure experienced during this stage results in regret, bitterness, and despair.
This last stage focuses on reflecting on life. When doing so, a person will likely either feel integrity or despair. If they feel a sense of integrity when reflecting on their lives, they will have gained the virtue of wisdom.
Success at the last and final stage in life leads to the virtue of wisdom.
