Description This chapter describes how young people in the Czech Republic perceive themselves as emerging adults. We focus on some of the main psychological attributes or features of emerging adults, such as subjective developmental status, feelings of possibilities and autonomy, identity exploration, commitments. The psychological characteristics are considered separately in four domains of functioning – relationship with parents, relationships with romantic partners, study, and work. Finally, we attempt to give more depth to this account by describing the four types or classes of emerging adults empirically identified in data from longitudinal study Paths to adulthood.
