We collected data from a national survey of
older adults through Qualtrics Panel. Our sample included 600 participants,
both men, and women in the age group of (40-89). We used a quota sampling
technique and grouped all respondents in the 10 age segments: 40-44, 45-49,
50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80-84, 85-89. Each of the 20 groups
(2 gender X 10 age segments) has 30 respondents. We asked participants an open-ended
question: “What are three things you do to make yourself feel younger? Please
list and explain in a few sentences”. The responses provided great insights
into how people feel about their changing self-view; what they do to maintain
it; how do they accept the age-related changes in their body, mind and social
life through various phases of transition. How do they accept their new
“old-self” and what they look forward to? We will use this data while
describing our model of transition-self.
