Age Change in Time Perception in native Americans, Mexican Americans, and Anglo-Americans
Shannon, Lael
Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology, 7, 1, 117-122, Mar 76
Native Americans, Mexican Americans, and Anglo-Americans estimated equal intervals of idle time and time spent working at meaningful tasks; whereas younger Anglo-Americans and all older groups perceived the idle time as longer, younger minority culture group perceived no difference in the two times; an interpretation incorporating negative order effects fits the data.
