What makes the accuracy of estimating ages from faces change? This research examines how it changes according to how much previous experience people had meeting those of about the same age as the people that they are trying to judge. Twenty nursery school teachers and 20 nursing home employees participated in the experiment. The former subjects are always meeting with children and the latter subjects are always seeing the elderly. The results indicated that the accuracy increases depending on their previous experience. The results suggest that as they acquire more experience, they learn to make a facial representation in which whole-part relations are represented in detail. The results showed that the nursery school teachers tried to use the information of the hair, eyes, mouth and cheeks of the children, and the nursing home employees tried to use the information of the skin, hair, eyes of the elderly.
