Abstract

The objectives of this study were - to find out gender, age and educational level differences in life satisfaction, positive and negative emotions and strengths of character among elderly and to find out inter-correlations among the variables. Three scales measuring - life satisfaction, positive and negative affectivity and strengths of character were administered to 134 elderly people from Pune, India. Their average age was 71.72 years. Results showed no gender differences on any variables. Mean scores of highly educated elderly on life satisfaction were significantly greater than those of less educated. Positive affectivity was found to be significantly greater among older elderly as compared to young elderly. Experience of negative emotions was found to be significantly less among older elderly as compared to young elderly. Correlations among variables were computed and discussed.
