Are you ageist? Do you ever find yourself being biased towards people?


I never really considered it until now. This doesn't really affect me outside of this messageboard. I'll look over to the left and see the person's age listed below their username. If they are really young (18 and younger) I tend to not take what they say seriously. If they are middle aged or older (late 30s and older) I think to myself that I can't relate to them.


I try to be objective when reading these forums but I just came to a realization that a person's age might be subtly affecting how I perceive someone's persona online. I guess I am just trying to relate with others and it is easier to do with people around your age group.
