Young at heart, old at work? Relations between age, (meta-)stereotypes, self-categorization, and retirement attitudes

Young at heart, old at work? Relations between age, (meta-)stereotypes, self-categorization, and retirement attitudes

Samenvatting

The aims of this study were to examine howworkers negative age stereotypes (i.e., denying older workers ability to develop) and negative meta-stereotypes (i.e., beliefs that the majority of colleagues feel negative about older workers) are related to their attitudes towards retirement (i.e., occupational future time perspective and intention to retire), and whether the strength of these relationships is influenced by workers self-categorization as an “older” person. Results of a study among Dutch taxi drivers provided mixed support for the hypotheses. Negative metastereotypes, but not negative age stereotypes,were associatedwith fewer perceived opportunities until retirement and, in turn, a stronger intention to retire. Self-categorization moderated the relationships between negative age (meta-)stereotypes and occupational future time perspective. However, contrary to expectations, the relations were stronger among workers with a low self-categorization as an older person in comparison with workers with a high self-categorization in this regard. Overall, results highlight the importance of psychosocial processes in the study of retirement intentions and their antecedents.
