Perceived Cognitive Ability of Young and Old Targets.
Hendrick, Jennifer J.; And Others
Canadian Journal on Aging, v7 n3 p192-203 Fall 1988
In two experiments designed to investigate perceived cognitive abilities of young and old targets, 200 undergraduates estimated the performance of either a young or an old target on several tests. Results suggest a highly differentiated view of cognitive abilities. Compared to norms, estimates were unrealistically generous, particularly for older adults. (Author/CH)
