c.preparatory stage, game stage, play stage, generalized other stage

d.game stage, play stage, generalized other stage, preparatory stage

A

Answer: B. Preparatory stage, play stage, game stage, generalized other stage

In development, Mead believed that everyone goes through the preparatory stage (where children develop intuition by copying the actions of those around them), the play stage (where the children take up roles by imitating the adults they observe), the game stage (where the children scrutinize these roles critically and understand how the different roles influence behavior), and lastly the generalized other stage (where they begin to grasp society’s insistence on people assuming assigned roles; at this stage, they can imagine how others see them, so their “self” breaks forth).
