Abstract

This research explores the duration of age stereotype priming effects on individuals’

the content of the stereotype of the older age group in Portugal. Study 2 tested the

will to live, immediately after priming or after a delay. Results showed significant

immediate and delayed will-to-live scores were both lower in the negative than in the

effects of stereotype valence. These findings demonstrate the robustness of these

types of unconscious influences on older people’s fundamental decisions.
