Title - Age Differences in Perceptual Generalization of Trust Learning

Speaker: Lauren Lilly
Doctoral Student, UT Dallas

Older adults exhibit excessive trust, likely associated with less learning of trust information than younger adults. Here we examined how participants generalize their choices by varying the degrees of likeness of new partners (perceptually morphed images) to the original partners. A hierarchical logistic regression determined that there was a significant interaction between age groups such that while there were no differences in playing with trustworthy morphs, older adults were more likely to choose to play with untrustworthy morphs than younger adults. These findings reveal age differences in trust generalization, which may function to facilitate fraud victimization.
