The problem of Taiwan’s independence was largely studied in political, economical and social aspects, however there is a gap in psychological studies related with this problem. For past 70-ty years we can outline significant changes in Taiwan general public’s identity status. This work assumes that there are 3 generations of Taiwanese 1st (60+ years old), 2nd (35-60 years old) and 3rd (18-35 years old), which differs by their identity status and the level of sociocultural distance with mainlanders of China. We suppose that identity status influence psychological well-being and self-efficacy of respondents. Research sample included 171 participants.
