A while back I saw a chart of psychological development milestones, and it said around the age of 28 people tend to think less in a collective and more on their own. I can't find the chart nor can I find anything backing up that claim since. Is there any evidence that this is true?

  • $\begingroup$ Well, older people definitely don't lose all sense of collectivism. But just from observation it seems like those who are 24+ tend to think more for themselves rather than follow a group, especially compared to those who are college-aged and younger. I wasn't sure if that is cultural or psychological. $\endgroup$ Jan 17 at 19:22
