It's the way the psyche interacts with a person's social aspect. How do you develop your psychological self within the rules of the social structure? And then how do you adapt to the social structure while maintaining your inner self?
I think the one for teenagers is Identity and Role. They try to define themsevles (the inside) within their environment (social-the outside) of adults and peers, more responsibility, etc. They have to discover their own talents and start becoming independent. Yet they can't become totally independent due to maturity (inside) and the social structure (outside.) Hello, teenage angst! If you don't balance the two, then you suffer in the other one. You either get the outsider kid who makes up for it in young adult hood (or doesn't) or the kid who does everything "right" but doesn't know a thing about himself.
