Sažetak

Although age is one of the first characteristics that we see in others, the research on
prejudice toward elderly people in adolescent samples is relatively rare. Therefore, the aim of
this study was to determine the contribution of the quality and quantity of contact with
elderly people (grandmothers/grandfathers, and generally elderly people to whom participants
are unrelated) to implicit and explicit attitudes toward elderly people. The study included
N=151 students (70 girls and 81 boys) of the average age of M=13.77 (SD = 0.82) years.
Implicit attitudes were measured by the Implicit Association Test (Greenwald et al., 1998),
whereas explicit attitudes were measured with Multi-Response Attitudes Measure (Doyle and
Aboud, 1995). We also examined the quality and quantity of contact with both the elderly
people to whom participants are unrelated and with their grandmothers/grandfathers. The
results have shown that only the quality of relationships with grandmothers/grandfathers has
an impact on the attitudes toward elderly, and only on the explicit ones.
