In psychology, the term identity crisis means the failure to achieve ego identity during adolescence. The stage of psycho-social development in which identity crisis may occur is called the Identity Cohesion vs. Role Confusion. During this stage, adolescents are faced with physical growth, sexual maturity and integrating ideas of themselves and about what others think of them.
Those who emerge from the adolescent stage of personality development with a strong sense of identity are well equipped to face adulthood with confidence and certainty. Bati connects with those that do not develop the aforementioned due to diverse global backgrounds and influences turning a crisis into a benefit.
The Identity Benefit
In an increasingly interconnected global community, instead of having to settle with a one dimensional identity, Bati coined this term which is the exact opposite of a crisis and it actually highlights the benefits of being multi-local, multi-cultural and multi-national.
These are the humans who feel at home in the place where they were born or grew up, the city they live now and maybe another place or two around the globe.
These people have naturally inherited or legally acquired various nationalities and equally value and leverage their citizenship in one country as they do in another.
These are the individuals who have inherited diverse cultural influences from their parents or family environments and embrace the diversity in all of it's facets.
Bati is a dual citizen of the United States and Guatemala with family ties to Brazil as well so he completely comprehends the intricacies of living in multi-dimensional environments.
