Abstract [sv]

Vi ville undersöka om det fanns några skillnader mellan äldre således yngre människor och hur de själva upplever emotionerna stolthet och skam. Åldersgruppen som representerade äldre var 60-70 åringar och den yngre åldersgruppen var 20-30 åringar. Undersökningen bygger på tio kvalitativa intervjuer som analyserats utifrån både emotion och interaktionsinriktade teorier.

Studiens resultat visade att det fanns både likheter och olikheter bland de två åldersgrupperna som jämförts.  Vad gäller likheter så hade samtliga informanter en gemensam bild av hur en stolt respektive skamsen person såg ut. Informanterna menade att en stolt person är glad och energisk medan en skamsen person är ledsen, tillbakadragen och ihopkrupen.

Den största olikheten bland de äldre och yngre var att den äldre åldersgruppen relaterade till stolthet utifrån deras välmående, hälsa och självständighet. För att nämna några exempel så relaterade den äldre åldersgruppen till stolthet när de klarade av att på egen hand ta sig ner för en trappa utan sin käpp, likaså var de stolta när de inte behövde någon annans hjälp. Den yngre åldersgruppen relaterade till stolthet när de hade gjort en bra uppgift inom ett skolsammanhang, när de uppfyllt sina personliga mål, eller när de tilldelats en högre position inom arbetet. Sammanfattningsvis så relaterade de yngre inte till hälsan som de äldre, utan mer till skola och karriär.

Abstract [en]

We wanted to investigate if there were any differences between older and younger people and how they experienced the emotions pride and shame. The age group that represented the elderly was 60-70 year olds and the younger age group was 20-30 year olds. The survey is based on ten qualitative interviews that have been analyzed based on both emotion and interaction-oriented theories.

The study's results showed that there were both similarities and differences among the two age groups compared. As for similarities, all informants had a common picture of how a proud and ashamed person looked. The informants said that a proud person is happy and energetic while a shameful person is sad, withdrawn and confused.

The greatest difference among the elderly and younger was that the older age group related to pride based on their well-being, health and independence. To name a few examples, the older age group related to pride when they managed to get down on a staircase without their cane, as well as being proud when they didn't need someone else's help. The younger age group related to pride when they had done a good job in a school context, when they fulfilled their personal goals, or when they were assigned a higher position in the work. In conclusion, the younger did not relate to the health of the elderly, but more to school and career.
