The study of personality arouses great interest in Psychology. This kind of investigation allows us to understand what differenciates people from each other. Considering the importance of using appropriate norms for the population in which the tests are used and the imminent increase in the life expectancy of the Brazilians, this work had the objective of investigating the need for specific norms of the Palográfico test for people older than 60 years. A total of 227 people, aged between 18 and 80 years, participated in the study, the majority being male (90.7%). Comparisons of means between the study group and the normative data indicated significant differences in 11 of the 20 characteristics of the test investigated in the study. Subsequently, the correlations found between age and measures reinforced the hypothesis concerning the influence of age on the test. Therefore, this article shows the importance of considering the need for specific norms for evaluation of the elderly population, in this and other psychological tests
