Description

This study examined age as a predictor of resilience based on the Psychological Body Armor (Everly, 2000) theoretical framework, which defines overall resilience as a combination of proactive (resistance/immunity) and reactive (ability to bounce back) resilience pathways. Data was collected from 202 participants through Amazon’s MTurk. The Mage of participants was 37.7 years (SD = 11.6), ranging between 22 and 76 years. After controlling for age, hierarchical regressions revealed that while variables measuring innate well-being traits contributed significantly to predicting resilience for both pathways (R2 = .40-.46 across models), age (maturation) did not (R2 = 0.016 for the full model).
