Individuals undergoing cataract surgery (N=134; 38 to 92 years of age) provided data for an assessment period of 6 weeks surrounding their scheduled surgery. Conscientiousness and repeated measurements of health indicators, functional limitations, and felt age were included in the analyses. Results indicated that functional limitations may be more important to the construction of felt age than their underlying health-related causes. Moreover, conscientious participants felt younger before and after surgery. Their functional status was less dependent on health than the functional status of less conscientious participants. This moderator effect is discussed along with health-related pathways leading to felt age.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Rieckmann, Nina</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2013-01-04T10:28:52Z</dc:date> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2013-01-04T10:28:52Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dc:contributor>Schwarzer, Ralf</dc:contributor> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Psychology and Aging ; 19 (2004), 4. - S. 676-688</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:creator>Knoll, Nina</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Knoll, Nina</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Scholz, Urte</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Scholz, Urte</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Rieckmann, Nina</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Predictors of Subjective Age Before and After Cataract Surgery : Conscientiousness Makes a Difference</dcterms:title> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
