The Relationship of Age to Life Satisfaction, Locus of Control, and Self Concept in Elderly Domiciliary Residents.
Nehrke, MiltonF.; And Others
This research project investigates the relationships between age and life satisfaction, self-concept, and locus of control among the aged. The predictions were based in large part on Erickson's adult development theory, and attempts were made to isolate the effects of age from other possible factors such as cohort and environment. The findings indicate that self-concept and life satisfaction are positively related to age. The oldest among the veterans appeared more satisfied with self and situation than did the younger veterans. Findings are discussed in terms of both Erikson's theory and disengagement theories of aging. (NG)
