Abstract

This study examined interpersonally aggressive strategies among older adults and the social and personal context in which these strategies are likely to be employed, Specifically we assessed the relationship of social interaction networks and gender roles to the use of direct and indirect aggression. We predicted that older adults would be more likely to employ indirect than direct strategies and that the use of such strategies would be associated with network structure (i.e., size, density, and knowingness) and gender roles,One hundred ten older adults (mean age, 71 years; range, 55-89 gears) completed questionnaires and interviews designed to measure aggressive strategies; gender roles; and network size, density, and knowingness. Respondents reported using more indirect than direct strategies. Those who reported using indirect aggression also reported being relatively masculine and having larger but less connected interaction networks, Use of direct aggression was associated with lower femininity scores but was not related to network structure.
