The aim of this article is to present the results of the authors research which apply to a picture of an older person in a group of contemporary young adults. The sample of young adults consisted of 90 people (equal amount of men and women). The picture of an elder was settled on scores received in Sentence-Completion Test by P. Golde & N. Kogan. The results show that the picture of a senior (in the sample of young adults) is generally positive and more positive in women than in men. Also the positive vs negative character of the picture depends on a dimension which is included (eg. the elder as a person, their life-style, their economic level of life). Also the essence which consists a picture of an older person is specific for this particular age group. In majority it covers the traits underlined by literature like typical for seniors, but there are also some new elements. The picture of an older person in both essence and evaluative aspects also changes if it applies to a group of seniors or the people who we personally know.
