In any society nowadays,
most people do not have much respect for the elderly.
But there are still some people
who do treat the elderly with respect.
Some people respect the elderly out of their
natural respect to seniority, priority or ranking.
But more of these some people respect the elderly because
they are convinced by
the advice, experience or assistance
they receive from the elderly.
Therefore, the elderly's own behaviour can
help determine how far they are respected.
a senior intern can act to a respectable intern if
he can act the role of an intern properly
an elderly can act to a respectable person if
he can act with his seniority（老而彌堅）,
but not by his seniority (以老賣老）.

The Intern is a 2015 American comedy film
directed by Nancy Meyers.
The film stars Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway
in the two leading roles。
Anne Hathaway act as Jules Ostinis
who is the founder and CEO of About the Fit,
a fast-growing e-commerce fashion company.
Robert De Niro acts a Ben Whitaker
who is a widower and retired executive
at a phone directory company
who becomes a senior intern for Jules Ostinis.
In the film, you can see how Ben
as a senior intern can act to become
a respectable intern as he can act the role of
an intern properly with his seniority.
But I think not many elderly can
act to become a respectable elderly
with his seniority as Ben Whitaker
who should be an exception in reality.
