Off-Target Verbosity and Talkativeness in Elderly People.
Gold, Dolores Pushkar; And Others
Canadian Journal on Aging, v12 n1 p67-77 Spr 1993
Responses of 125 older adults to a life-history interview were rated for frequency and extent of off-target verbosity. Talkativeness was rated by participants, 125 peers, and 10 professionals. Talkativeness did not appear to be age linked, suggesting that irrelevance in discourse may instead reflect longstanding personality traits. (SK)
