This program is funded in part under a contract with the Central MN Council on Aging as part of the Older Americans Act Program. by biata'lda Charles .How old do you feel? A show of hands, please: How many of us feel significantly younger than our real age? Many seniors feel, on average, about 13 years younger than we really are. So says a large study that was done over the course of six years with participants aged 70 and older. The mirror told a different story, though. It's not surprising that women felt closer to .their real age when it comes to appearance. We can blame Madison Avenue for that one,-I'm sure. In certain cir- cles there's a negative stereotype about older women, and unfortu- nately some of us buy into it. Men don't seem to have the same self- image problems, according to the study. And given the same age between men and women, women perceived themselves to be on average four years older than the men. By the end of the study, how- ever, it was the men whose satis- faction with themselves decreased more than the women's did. Perceptions in general changed as the study went on. By the end of the study, many reported a decrease of a few years in the dif- ference between real and per- ceived age. There was a link between feel- ing young and healthy and living a long life, of course. Those who had a positive attitude about aging in general had the greatest discrep- ancy between real and perceived age. Those who started the study with health issues perceived their age to be closer to what it actually was. I'm not sure I like the attitude of one of the researchers, though. She was quoted as saying that the 13 years is an "illusion." Of c.ourse it is. But so are the images that are put before us by Madison Ave- nue. As long as we're happy and healthy, does it matter what "num- ber" we assign ourselves?
