Kinder, Gentler, More Generous Seniors

There is a study out that says the stereotype of the grumpy old person, “the get off my lawn” persona may not fit the majority of seniors.

Researchers from National University of Singapore did the work with one group of 70 year old volunteers and another group with an average age of 23.

What did they find?  Twenty-something’s and seniors shared a level of respect and kindness for family and friends but that seniors extended more kindness to strangers than the younger set.

Study leaders suggest senior kindness and generosity is likely the result of  their values shifting away from purely personal interests to the more lasting meaning found in a sense of community. (Daily Mail)
