Hummert, Mary Lee
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v39 n1 p5-19 1994
Examined relationship between physiognomic cues to age and activation of positive versus negative stereotypes of elderly individuals in interaction. Findings from undergraduate students who sorted and categorized photographs of older adults indicated that subjects associated positive stereotypes of elderly individuals with young-old physiognomic characteristics, whereas they associated negative stereotypes with old-old physiognomy.
