Effects of Gender and Age on Retrospective Time Judgements
AbstractThis study provides additional empirical evidence to the research concerning the effects of gender and age on retrospective time judgements using data obtained from a Spanish database with more than 40,000 individual observations on time estimations. Statistical analyses were performed using the Levene F-test and the t-test of variances and means, respectively. The most important results of the study are as follows: i) differences in time estimation in relation to gender largely depend on the age groups analysed, with greater differences observed in the younger age group; and ii) a monotonous relationship does not exist between age and time estimations when age is a constituent factor in time judgements.
