Thinking You’re Old And Frail
Older adults who categorize themselves as old and frail encourage attitudinal and behavioral confirmation of that identity.
This is the conclusion of a study conducted by Krystal Warmoth and colleagues at University of Exeter Medical School, which is being presented today, 9th April 2013, at the British Psychological Society Annual Conference in Harrogate, UK.
Krystal Warmoth concluded that: "this study gives insight into the role of social psychological factors in older adults' health and activity".
