Answer:

Erik Erikson.

Explanation:

Thought to have been inspired by Sigmund Freud and his Psychoanalytic Theory of Personality (and his theory of Psychosexual Devlopment), Erikson's Psychosocial Theory of Human Development describes the human personality as developing in stages throughout a person's lifetime. But unlike Sigmund Freud's Theory of Psychosexual Development, which claims the development stops at around 5 years of age, Erikson claims development continues until death.
