Also keep in mind that using age based stereotypes to determine personnel decisions (hiring, promotions, work assignments etc) is illegal. Allow these stereotypes to seep into your day to day thinking and they can subliminally influence your decisions. Follow the pattern long enough and you may end up learning more about EEO rules and regulations than you ever wanted to know. Do you really want to explain assigning personnel to high profile projects with promotion potential because they did or did not fit a stereotype?
