Abstract:   (2901 Views)
The purpose of the present research was to investigate the relationship of meta-cognition and cognitive failures in the elderly. The research sample consisted of 280  elderly subjects (male and female) who were randomly  selected in the city of Ardabil. Meta-cognition Questionnaire and Cognitive Failures Questionnaire were used for gathering data. The results of Pearson correlation showed that meta-cognition and its components are related to cognitive failures in elderly subjects (r=0.18, P<0.05). The result of multiple  regression showed that cognitive confidence and cognitive self-consciousness components were the best predictors of cognitive failures in order; and positive beliefs about worry, negative beliefs about the uncontrollability of thoughts, and beliefs about the need of thought control, had  not significant contribution in predicting the dependent variable. In total, the results indicated that  high levels of destorted meta-cognition increases cognitive failures in the elderly.
