This is a largely subjective question and for that reason, you will get many different responses. You ask a kid this question and he or she will say that 25 is old! And you ask a 25 year old and he or she may see himself or herself and young, but view the 60 year old as old. So, there is no good answer for this.As for social factors, we are on more solid ground. I would say that the media has a huge role in shaping people’s idea of what is “young” or “old.” In particular, what the media does, in my opinion, is glorify youth and so it conditions minds to view younger as better than older. Sports also does this. Being able to do athletic things is glorified and it is usually done by the young.We might also want to talk about the various ways in which older people try to look young or the popularity of plastic surgery as a society’s desparate attempt to be young.
