Piaget believed that all children try to strike a balance between assimilation and accommodation, which is achieved through a mechanism Piaget called equilibration. As they develop, they reach the achieving stage between childhood and adolescence. They have also to deal with the future plans of the organisations. Acquisition Stage The period of childhood and part of adolescence can be termed as the acquisition stage in human life according to Schaie. It is during the final part of the sensorimotor stage that early representational thought emerges.
It could solaparse with the previous in function of the own individual development, initiating surroundings to the 30-40 years. Research in Human Development, 2, 133-158. He or she is capable of deductive and hypothetical reasoning. Preoperational stage ages 2 to 4 The child is not yet able to conceptualize abstractly and needs concrete physical situations. In achieving stage, the individual applies intelligence in achieving long term goals like career development. People, get interested in leaving their earthly interests.
The development of intellectual use has goals that move from the acquisition of information and skills what I need to know , to the practical integration of knowledge and skills how to use what I know , until the search of the meaning and purpose of knowledge and skills why I should know.

It is important to note that Piaget did not view children's intellectual development as a quantitative process; that is, kids do not just add more information and knowledge to their existing knowledge as they get older.

This study has also investigated family similarity in cognition, environmental factors, and health behaviors, and has included the long-term follow-up of cognitive training effects in older adults. Suppose then that the child encounters an enormous dog. Early adult transition 17 - 22 Step out; explore build Enter adult world 22 - 28 Start family; pursue a dream? It is able to differentiate between itself and other objects. Extending neuropsychological assessment into the Primary Mental Ability space. The focus shifts to application of knowledge acquired during the acquisition stage.
The young adults tend to look for their proper place in the society and seldom use logic in problem solving. The nurse is aware that according to the Eriksonian theory, a lack of intimacy in this persons life can result in: a. As children progress through the stages of cognitive development, it is important to maintain a balance between applying previous knowledge assimilation and changing behavior to account for new knowledge accommodation.

This is the stage of decentralization where the individual learns to thinks objectively and considers every aspect of a problem.
