    Department of Psychology, Northwestern University, Evanston, IL, USA
    Psychol Aging 21:240-52. 2006
    ..Study 4 ruled out that the age differences were due to differences in the 2 tasks themselves. Taken together, the studies underscore the importance of situating motivational research into a life span context...

    J Gerontol B Psychol Sci Soc Sci 57:P426-34. 2002
    ..Taken together, results of these studies indicate that individuals, when asked to choose between alternative proverbs characterizing ways of managing life, prefer SOC-related proverbs...

    Jacqui Smith
    Max Planck Institute for Human Development, Berlin, Germany
    J Gerontol B Psychol Sci Soc Sci 57:P492-500. 2002
    ..People who added matched possible selves about health, focused on maintenance, and added few new domains of hopes declined in life satisfaction. Overall, these findings indicate that possible selves are a dynamic system during old age...
