Although individuals symbolically embrace multiple identities, many of those identities call for the enactment of roles and carrying out of responsibilities in order for them to be socially validated and sustained. For example, while bearing a child makes one a parent, neglect in carrying out the roles and responsibilities of that identity can call it into question. Due to lack of time, energy, emotions, and resources, the behavioral expression of some identities can become problematic or untenable (see Moore, 1963; French and Caplan, 1972). Thus, multiple identities must be behaviorally articulated with one another such that the wherewithal is managed sufficiently to permit the expression of competing identities, particularly those which are not simply worn on one’s “cuff.”
