Older subjects were better able to identify the value of pain (75% of college freshmen vs. 9% of preschoolers). However, overall, half of the subjects (54%) could not identify a value of pain. An additional 9% only identified pain values such as relief or familiarity with the pain. Interestingly, age was a better predictor of more cognitively mature answers about pain than were measures derived from a Piagetian conservationidentity task. This may have been due to the relative insensitivity of the cognitive measure, but the authors also argued that life experiences and encounters with pain increase with age and are likely to influence cognitions about pain independent from general cognitive maturity.
