14 Personality Types of Early Old Agers

Thus far, I have come up with 14 personality types of early old agers. I’m sure some, if not many, people will see this as an entirely fruitless endeavor, lacking in significant meaning. Basically, these are my own, non-professional observations, and we are all uniquely different in how we observe the world we live in.

The concept of 14 personality types I am proposing here has multiple meanings that at the very least have increased self and external awareness about early old age. I’m sharing them here to possibly get a reaction from any readers, positive or negative. So, please free to voice opinions, etc. in the comments section at the end of this piece or send a note directly to me at george@understandingxyz.com.

In Pursuit of Wisdom

Wisdom – How would you define that word? In Simon’s popular song, the pursuit of wisdom is elusive, as he settles for “a little drop.” It’s a work in progress that he hopes to achieve some semblance of before he’s “through.” Isn’t that what growing old is all about?

Think Deeply, It May Do Some Good

As I have noted in a good number of previous posts, early old age, which varies for some, ranging anywhere from 45 to 65, brings lots of consternation about who you really are and what you are doing with yourself in work and elsewhere. You come to an intersection where you think more deeply about where your compass is pointing, and it’s almost like going back in time to when you were first trying to figure out what you were going to do with your life.
