Krisis usia seperempat abad merupakan krisis perkembangan yang terjadi pada masa emerging adulthood. Krisis usia seperempat abad terjadi karena pengaruh beberapa faktor, di antaranya kepribadian kesungguhan dan dukungan sosial. Tujuan dari penelitian ini adalah menguji peran kepribadian kesungguhan terhadap krisis usia seperempat abad pada emerging adulthood dengan dukungan sosial sebagai mediator. Partisipan penelitian ini adalah individu yang berada pada kelompok usia 18-25 tahun sebanyak 286 orang. Terdapat tiga alat ukur yang digunakan, yaitu Skala Quarter-life Crisis, Big-Five Inventory (BFI), dan The Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support (MSPSS). Analisis mediasi menggunakan PROCESS, menunjukkan bahwa dukungan sosial memediasi peran kepribadian kesungguhan terhadap krisis usia seperempat abad sebesar 13% (-0,1286; p < 0,05). Dengan demikian, dapat disimpulkan bahwa dukungan sosial berfungsi sebagai mediator atas peran kepribadian kesungguhan terhadap krisis usia seperempat abad.
