Description Macrosocial factors provide a broader perspective of human development, since changes in society to some extent gradually reflect at the individual level. Unique opportunities for such studies are provided by societies passing through significant change (political, cultural). Social and psychological stability in a changing society is low, while mobility is high. There are only a few psychological (longitudinal) researches, which have the opportunity to address this issue. Among them is the Brno Longitudinal Study on Life-Span Development, which began in 1961. The sample consists of 83 participants (48 women aged 36-44 years). In comparison with other, especially American and Western European studies, we found differences mainly in the work area or in relation to one's own health. Unlike other psychological research ongoing in changing societies (e.g. reunified Germany), our research is characterized by higher intergenerational continuity, for example in the field of education.
