A prescriptive intergenerational-tension ageism scale: Succession, identity, and consumption (SIC)

Michael S. North, Susan Tufts Fiske

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Ageism is a peculiar prejudice. Despite the reality that every living person potentially joins every age group, ageism remains relatively underresearched (comparatively rare in prejudice literature), underappreciated (overlooked as a prejudice), and under the radar (subtle in nature; North & Fiske, 2012). Nevertheless, a rapidly growing older population necessitates increased understanding of ageism-for both social psychology and society at large.
