It just doesn’t excite me much.” • Foreclosure: no exploration, but commitment • “My parents decided a long time ago what I should go into for employment and I’m following through with their plans.” • Moratorium: exploration without commitment • “Religion is confusing to me right now. I keep changing my views on what is right and wrong for me.” • Achievement: exploration and commitment • “It took me a while to figure it out, but now I really know what I want for a career.”
