AnnotationOlder people's personalities vary as much as those of younger people, and probably more so. It is misleading, then, to regard them as an age group whose members have identical needs, and whose problems have identical solutions. Even the shared experience of retirement is perceived in a variety of ways: it may be approached with enthusiasm, resentment, fear, or indifference. The attitudes displayed are determined by personality and by the particular circumstances met. By "personality", the author means a person's relatively habitual ways of thinking, feeling and acting.
