Furthermore, we believe that diverse methodologies within both quantitative and qualitative approaches are needed in order to capture the richness and complexity of identity. In the epilogue, we consider our current state of progress in addressing these differences and suggest some future directions—with the goal of facilitating greater integration of the field of identity studies. But for now, we outline in a bit more detail the forms that these divisions have taken within the literature to date, as well as discussing why each of these divisions might be viewed as unhelpful.

Jensen et al. also review the challenges and opportunities that globalization presents for people forming their identities, especially during adolescence and emerging adulthood. 1 Introduction: Toward an Integrative View of Identity 17 Well-being, needs, and motives. In the third section, we present five perspectives on needs and motives that are understood to underlie many of the identity processes identified and described in the previous two sections, as well as the implications of these processes for well-being.

Hence, we believe that the differences in methodological preferences can partially account for the differences in how identity has been conceptualized across traditions. If this is the case, then integrating the identity literature requires researchers to look beyond the methodologies that are most familiar to them, and to see what insights can be gained by paying attention to alternative methodological as well as theoretical traditions. Toward Integration We believe that the identity literature is in need of an integrative perspective that brings together the strengths of these seemingly contrasting theoretical and methodological approaches without losing sight of the unique contributions that each of these approaches can make.
