Abstract: Stereotyped beliefs about old age and the aging process have proven to strongly promote negative behaviors toward the elderly, with unfavorable influences on their mental and physical health. Therefore, it is important to assess negative aging attitudes with brief but reliable and validated measurement instruments. The psychometric properties of the Portuguese version of the Negative Stereotypes Towards Aging Questionnaire (15 items self-reported) are explored and described in a sample of 302 participants (213… Show more

“…Moreover, Kruse and Schmitt [33] found more positive age stereotypes in people living in rural compared to urban areas. An influence of educational level was also found, with less negative stereotypes of aging in adults with a higher education [45]. All of this indicates that more attention needs to be steered toward the role of sociodemographic variables in cross-cultural research on attitudes toward aging.…”

“…In other words, they become a self-fulfilling prophecy: the very fact that you are in a group subject to certain forms of stereotyping seems to contribute to reinforce the presence of these behaviours. Thus, for example, among the most common stereotypes applied to older adults there is the idea that older people have no sexual activity or that this is much lower, erroneously considering this stage of life as practically asexual (Cerquera et al, 2012;Lucas-Matheu, 2013); that they are not physically active (Emile et al, 2014); that they tend to get progressively isolated from others (Nunes et al, 2018); that they lack social networks (Cornwell et al, 2008); or that they share uniform traits (North and Fiske, 2013). An example of older adults' diversity is the so-called generation of 'woofs', which currently represents the paradigm of active and satisfactory ageing (Moreno Toledo et al, 2014), challenging the widespread image of old age as decay and fragility.…”

“…However, free time is a requirement for leisure; only the pleasant, self-servicing, and autonomous experience of that free time makes it leisure (Cuenca, 2009). However, the use of free time may be affected by stereotypes towards ageing, which include assumptions and generalisations that prescribe how older people should behave (Lucas-Matheu, 2013;Emile et al, 2014;Dionigi, 2015;Nunes et al, 2018).…”

“…with regard to education, class, race and/or gender) perceive COVID-19-related risk differently. Research before the COVID-19 crisis has shown that negative images towards ageing and internal ageism highly depend on socio-economic variables, including education (Nunes et al, 2018), gender (Bodner et al, 2012;Smith et al, 2016), age (Bodner et al, 2012) and ethnicity (Smith et al, 2016). First empirical studies on loneliness during the COVID-19 pandemic revealed that especially women and lower-income individuals experienced increased levels of loneliness during the pandemic (Seifert and Hassler, 2020).…”
