Résumé

According to the Stereotype Content Model, out-group stereotypes vary on
the dimensions of warmth and competence (Fiske, Cuddy, Glick, & Xu,
2002). Studies in other cultural settings have shown that elderly
persons are often viewed as warm but not very competent. The present
study was designed to examine societal stereotypes of the elderly among
118 Brazilians of different ages. Participants reported that Brazilian
society views the elderly as more warm than competent. With regard to
competence there were age-related differences with older persons seeing
the elderly as more competent than did younger persons. Interpretations
in terms of in-group preference and developmental changes are put forth.
