Attitudes Toward the Aged.
Signori, Edro I.; And Others
Research data elicited among subjects aged 14-40, on their attitudes toward the elderly (age 65 and over) indicates that older persons are viewed neutrally on many traits, better than average on some, and stereotypically on others. While they are viewed as weaker, poorer, and less powerful, they are also seen as having greater humanity, experience, sensitivity and persistence than younger persons. Implications of these attitudes toward older persons exist for policy-making in the care of the elderly. The rating instrument and the data analyses are appended. (CKJ)
