Merry Old Folks

While we are familiar with terms like ‘grumpy old man’, ‘old fogies’ and other such, this is not the case, say researchers from Colorado University//. Surprisingly, it’s older people who are more optimistic about life.

The research suggests that people become more positive as they get older, and it is the young who tend to have a "glass empty" view of the world.

As part of a survey of 150 persons, the subjects of varied ages were asked to look at several images for a few seconds. During this period, their brain reactions were monitored.

Several scans later, it was seen that young subjects focused more on the negative images while older volunteers showed a better balance between paying attention to negative and positive images.

Says Dr Michael Kisley, who led the study: "Whereas younger adults often pay more attention to emotionally negative information, older adults (above 55) tend to assign equal importance to emotionally positive information."

The report was published in the journal Psychological Science.
