Hating or resenting any person or groups of people for any reason, but especially on the basis of a trait such as age, is both ignorant and unfair. Positive and Negative Stereotypes Tuckman and Lorge (1953) were among the first gerontologists to study stereotypes. Using a list of statements with which subjects were asked to agree or disagree, they found that old people were perceived as being set in their ways, unproductive, a burden to their children, stubborn, grouchy, lonely, “rocking-chair types,” and in their second childhood.

Ing economic burdens, and the need for changes in social policy have resulted. The need to address the issues of an aging nation is upon us. Gerontologists believe that ageism can be ameliorated through education and the changing health and lifestyle of the “new” elderly, who are more healthy and vigorous than the population of elders preceding them.
