|Description||Berzonsky (1992) described three identity processing styles (informational,
normative, and diffuse/avoidant) which people use to manage identity challenges.
Different people can utilize different styles to deal with identity crisis, but tend to
favor one over the others. In this study, I translated a measure of identity processing
style, the Identity Processing Style Q-sort (IPSQ-sort; Pittman, Kerpelman, Lamke, &
Sollie, 2009) from English to Mandarin. A back translation technique was used to
translate the items; this also included a review by the original author of the IPSQ-sort.
Then, I evaluated the validity of the Mandarin version with college students from
several universities in Taiwan.
