Social Perception of Middle-Aged Persons Varying in Physical Attractiveness
Adams, Gerald R.; Huston, Ted L.
Developmental Psychology, 11, 5, 657-658, Sep 75
This study indicates that more socially desirable characteristics are attributed to physically attractive than unattractive middle-aged persons. It is suggested that this difference in social desirability is greater for female than male stimuli and that elderly persons stereotype middle-aged persons more favorably than young adults do. (JMB)
