The present research studies relation of emotional self-regulation, thrill seeking and impulsiveness, and formation of identity crisis, aiming to understand a conceptual model within the theoretical framework and in form of a multivariate model. The study is of Ex post facto design and was performed in two phases. The subjects were assessed upon passing the least required score to identify identity crisis through personal identity test using MARS Emotional Self-regulation questionnaire, Zuckerman Thrill Seeking scale and Barratt Impulsiveness Scale. In order to test the authenticity of the theoretical model of the study and calculate the effectiveness indexes, Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) was used. Low emotional self-regulation in the youth results in increase of thrill seeking and impulsiveness in them and high degree of thrill seeking and impulsiveness increases the formation of identity crisis in them. This study emphasizes on the key role of emotional self-regulation skill in growth of healthy identity and the most serious consequence of low emotional self-regulation disturbs growth of identity and gives birth to the identity crisis.
