Stage 4

Stage 4The Formal Operational Stage

Begins at age 12 and continues throughout adulthood

At this stage, "children" have reached cognitive operational level of an adult. Their reasoning encompasses abstract thinking (regarding imagined realities and symbols), they can perceive beyond vicinity, and can presume consequences for their actions. They also have developed the ability to solve hypothetical propositions. Individuals in this state use systematic reasoning, otherwise known as formal operational thinking.

What occurs in this stage?

This short interview demonstrates how an individual in this stage exhibits abstract thinking and can make deeper connections.

This stage is the culmination of Piaget's Cognition Theory, and effectively describes how individuals are able to think at the highest level once they reach the beginning of adolescence.
