Individual Differences in the Consideration of Information Among Two Year Old Children.<
Reppucci, N. Dickon
One central aspect of children's behavior in play and in situations of response uncertainty may involve the degree to which the child considers available information and forms a plan to guide behavior. Twenty-five boys and 25 girls, aged 27 months, were observed in a 30-minute free play session in which mobility and time spent in sustained involvement with toys were coded. In addition, the response times on an embedded figures task and on a two-choice discrimination task which induced conflict were obtained. Sustained involvement with toys was positively related to response times in conflict situations and negatively related to motor activity. (Author)
