Context mapping shows what is important to an individual and is a way to get to see how a person describes themselves. This is an easy way to allow people to describe themselves in a low pressure way. There are four different types of identity.
1. Achieved Identity: this is when the individual has successfully integrated his ego-identity from the past, present, and future.
2. Foreclosed Identity: the identity that is either thrust upon a person or accepted.
3. Moratorium: when one actively explores ones roles, beliefs, behaviors, and relationships.
4. Diffuse Identity: an identity with no real commitment and changes more often than not.
