In this article we argue that different patterns of aging can be best understood if we shift the emphasis from looking at discrete characteristics to an emphasis on the whole individual. In this way aging becomes the integration of past experience and present events in the framework of a continuous self. We argue that different Styles of Aging derive from specific personality configurations. Using five personality types, as defined in axis II of DSM-III-R, we illustrate how the elderly cope with the constraints of old age, create an aging identity and respond to life events in ways that fit their personality styles. We conclude by suggesting new research questions.
