The Idea of Leisure Repertoire

The Idea of Leisure Repertoire Our intention is to describe and explain the idea of leisure repertoire. Leisure repertoire isdefined as the personal "library" of largely intrinsically motivated activities that the participantpractices on a regular basis. The leisure repertoire is determined by two criteria: perceivedcompetence and psychological comfort. Perceived competence relates to the individual's judgment of performance compared to members of the same age cohort and gender. Psychologicalcomfort refers to the person's perception of performance judged in relation to personal, internalstandards. The leisure repertoire of the elderly person is of particular concern because of theabundance of free time accompanying retirement and the age-related deficits limiting theperson's ability to use free time meaningfully. The article closes with a discussion of the probablefactors mediating the leisure repertoires of the elderly and recommendations for measurementof the leisure repertoire. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Applied Gerontology SAGE

Abstract

Our intention is to describe and explain the idea of leisure repertoire. Leisure repertoire isdefined as the personal "library" of largely intrinsically motivated activities that the participantpractices on a regular basis. The leisure repertoire is determined by two criteria: perceivedcompetence and psychological comfort. Perceived competence relates to the individual's judgment of performance compared to members of the same age cohort and gender. Psychologicalcomfort refers to the person's perception of performance judged in relation to personal, internalstandards. The leisure repertoire of the elderly person is of particular concern because of theabundance of free time accompanying retirement and the age-related deficits limiting theperson's ability to use free time meaningfully. The article closes with a discussion of the probablefactors mediating the leisure repertoires of the elderly and recommendations for measurementof the leisure repertoire.
