Age Differences in Adults' Self-Reports of Memory Ability: It Depends on How and What You Ask.
Cavanaugh, John C.
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v24 n4 p271-77 1986-87
Obtained self-reports of memory abilities and skills from 50 younger and 50 older adults. General rating questions and specific questions about memory for certain types of content were included. Consistent age-related decrements were found only for general questions, especially those assessing perceived changes over time. Less consistent differences were found for specific questions.
