Self-Perceptions of Intellectual Control and Aging.
Cornelius, Steven W.; Caspi, Avshalom
Educational Gerontology, v12 n4 p345-57 1986
Investigated beliefs about intellectual control and aging in 86 middle-aged and older adults. Perceptions of internal control over intellectual functioning appeared to be relatively stable during middle adulthood and to decline for older adults. Even with effects of education partialled, there was a decline in perceptions of intellectual self-efficacy and an increase in concern about intellectual aging. (Author/NB)
