The Psychology of Human Aging
« on: December 01, 2011, 08:47:47 AM »
by: A. Lorenzo Lucino Jr, M.D-Ph.Dc





      Aging is a natural process of life and we all age from the day we were born to the day that we die, the body continues in this natural progression of life, which translates in changes in the physiological body as well as human psychology and function. When one regards the phenomenon that is aging, one has to take into consideration the negative and positive factors, in this case, healthy aging and unhealthy aging. Healthy aging refers to the positive factors that an individual goes through throughout retirement, and the positives in aging. This may include the practices of eating healthy, exercising actively, maintaining social relationships and a support group while one ages. Unhealthy aging is the antithesis of healthy aging, this term may regard to the negative aspects of aging attributed to bad health practices of an individual such as smoking, drinking, a lack of support group as one ages (Growing Old In A New Age, 1993).


   One has to take into consideration the natural processes of career development and how these processes plays a role in retirement, the psychological effects of people in retiring age. This is best observed in Donald Super’s Five Stages of Career Development; his career stages included the Growth stage, Exploration stage, Establishment stage, Maintenance stage and the Disengagement stage (Bjorklund and Bee, 2008). In regards to retirement , it is rather interesting that there is such a stark contrast in the male and female work schedule.


       Bjorklund and Bee mentions that more men work full time than women , importantly, more men maintain a constant work schedule as compared to women, who have to worry about taking maternity leave, sick leave as compared to men. Women are also more willing to work part time jobs than men, as well as the fact that women are more inclined to move in and out of full time jobs more frequently than men (Bjorklund and Bee, 2008). Despite the fact that more and more women are taking more active roles and positions in the work force, it is rather interesting to note that men are still being paid higher wages than women for doing the same work. This affects the notion of retirement and the prospect of retirement in that due to this stark difference in work schedules and contributions, could result in differences in social security payment for men and women.


   Retirement and the prospect of retirement is rather dependent on social security , which was established some 60 years ago during the post-Great Depression Years, and because of this institutionalized system, could allow some sort of reprieve for workers. It is also important to note that job satisfaction, work and personal life affects the choice in retiring from a particular profession. If a professional enjoys his profession and receives not only economic rewards, but also emotional, social and physical rewards from the job, he or she is less likely to retire from the profession when he or she is reaching retiring age, but would rather choose to work part time. As compared to an individual who had less interest in the work place and would probably take the option or retiring early (Bjorklund and Bee, 2008).


   One also has to take into consideration how marriage and family life affects work and the prospect of work. It is evidenced that married men will earn a higher income as compared to unmarried men, likewise, married men are absent from work less than unmarried men (Bjorklund and Bee, 2008). Elizabeth Gorman notes that married men and women are usually more interested and focused on the prospects of a job than single men and women (Bjorklund and Bee, 2008). One can argue that due to the fiscal responsibilities of married couples, which might include paying off a mortgage loan, ensuring that their children finish college and find a stable profession etc. All of these said fiscal responsibilities and duties might play a significant role in a couple’s decision to retire from a job, or even delay retirement definitely. One has to understand that retirement will have particular effects, including a change in income, change in insurance coverage, and thus could play a role in the decision to retire or delaying retirement for some time. A couple who is in the retirement age, have no children, paid off their financial responsibilities would be more willing to retire than say a couple in retiring age that still had children in college, still paying for mortgage and other secondary expenses.


   In regards to Bjorlund and Bee’s teaching on the effects of retirement and the notion of the feminization of poverty. However, it must say that I do agree that retirement is more possible in this epoch because of the presence of social security, retirement benefits, pensions, as well as assets that are available as compared to say some 70 years ago when an individual was expected to work till he or she died.

Don't get old! Plain and simple. I'd say, 50 should be the median age. If ever you do... learn to accept defeat, bwahaha!  ;D

guess who's aging gracefully, i.e. has a better grasp of the psychology of human aging.  obviously, she comes out more dignified.

Good day everyone! I hope I could still remember the lesson taught us back in grade school. My teacher said that as we get older we become weaker. Well, now that I am what it was, here are my benign signs when one gets old:

1. Mental lapses
2. One cannot remember the first one.
3. Go back to number 1.

God bless!

A Layman,

From reading your posts, your knowledge on technical issues, the environment and politics is indicative of an educated brain. The more you read, the more you stimulate your brain intellectually, the more you are able to prevent memory lapses. The act of thinking actually stimulates the neuromuscular junctions in our synapses and prevents age-related degradation. In a recent research conducted by a medical team from John Hopkins University School of Medicine, higher brain activity and function is prolonged by intellectual stimulation.

This means that we all should keep on reading.

For me, its No. As I grow older, I  became  brighter and with keener mind. At 60, I started using the computer and internet. I'm a blogger and web designer without taking any computer course. LOg on my blogs:http://feldarblogspotcom.blogspot.com/,       http://darayagrifacts.blogspot.com/

At 60, I write  articles of the monthly Agriculture Magazine and  Bisaya Magazine  of the Manila Bulletin Publishing Corporation. Then, I started learning the piano keyboard. And now , I can play some Christian Songs

That is great, Mr. Daray. Intellectual stimulation has been proven to delay neurological degradation. In a medical study, cognitive stimulation via intellectual activities can actually delay dementia, Alzheimer's disease etc.


For those who are interested, I recommend the following articles:

Here's my viewpoint as a layman about aging and retirement. You may follow this link should you wish to read the full context.

http://elibitancor.blogspot.com/2007/05/my-keynote-address.html

I have to accept the fact that I am going into that direction as you are. Although my physical condition may not manifest such a human transformation, I heard from around children calling me 'Lolo' 'coz of the snow froast at my top but the furnace deep inside of me is still burning as a young carabao. So, I partly affirm such condition with an open mind. LOL! As a matter of fact, it is an honor for me to become the youngest Ninong in two golden wedding rites already, a fete to reckon with among the oldies. And I still hope to add some more in my record book! Well, life must go on 'igan' but as soon as you feel  that sign, be cool and stay young as you are! Merry Christmas to Everyone in TB!

A belated Merry Christmas to you, A Layman!  Thanks for this post, which I was able to read just now. The culmination and crowning glory of any man is experience, and grey hairs , which attest to his battles with life's tests. Thanks for sharing your experiences with us.


Best,

When a man reaches the age of 75, he thanks God for the life well lived. When he is able to celebrate his 85th birthday, he thanks God for giving him a bonus of ten years. Pag molapas na siya nuybenta, dili na bonus ang gihatag niya kundi bugnot na. LOL
