Developmental psychology theorist looks at various stages in a person’s life in order to find a common link in behavior.
Often the study of one’s life span and the attitudes toward aging are a significant portion of the developmental psychology research.
In a recent study it was revealed that older people were actually happier than younger people because they were more carefree about their lives and did not worry about the judgment that they worried about when they were younger.
This is really contrary to what most people believe that it is the younger more youthful people that are happiest because they have so much yet to experience in life.
The reality is that with age also comes a certain degree of confidence that few young people experience. Older people have, “Been there and done that”.
