Blank, Thomas O.; Levesque, Maurice J.
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v37 n2 p105-18 1993
Examined age differences in attributions for self-reported successes and failures in important and daily situations. Attributions and affects were collected from 61 young, 21 middle-aged, and 15 older adults. Middle-aged and older adults were more likely than young adults to attribute failure to external causes and to describe more social than nonsocial situations. (Author/NB)
