The aim of this paper was the comparison of the higher order nonverbal abilities, between young children and older adults. In specific, 42 kindergarten and 56 elementary school students (age range: 5 – 8 years), as well as 118 new-old adults and 27 old-old adults (age range: 61 – 88 years), were examined in the Children’s Category Test-Level 1 (CCT-1). Findings from the Confirmatory Factor Analyses that were applied to data, possibly reflect the delay of development of general abstraction and working memory in the group of kindergarten students and the decline of them in the group of old-old adults.
