The article discusses the findings of research on the prevalence of technophobia amongst older adults in Ireland. The study was conducted using questionnaires which consisted of computer anxiety rating scale form C (CARS-C), computer thoughts survey form C (CTS-C) and general attitudes toward computers scale form C (GATCS-C). The research revealed that older women are more likely to demonstrate higher levels of technophobia than older men and are more less likely to use computers.
