Getting Older, Getting Better? Personal Strivings and Psychological Maturity across the Life Span.
Sheldon, Kennon M.; Kasser, Tim
Developmental Psychology, v37 n4 p491-501 Jul 2001
Examined psychological maturity based on personal strivings in 108 adults ages 17 to 82 years. Results supported hypotheses that older people would list more strivings concerning generativity and ego integrity and fewer strivings concerning identity and intimacy, and that maturity and age would be positively associated with subjective well-being. Measured maturity mediated the relationship between age and well-being. (Author/KB)
