Sex Differences in Children's Aggression.
McIntyre, Anne
In 27 preschoolers observed social activity was significantly and positively correlated with physical, verbal, direct, and indirect aggression in girls (physical and direct aggression, p .05; verbal and indirect aggression, p .01), but negatively correlated with all but verbal aggression in boys (all p's .01). Boys had high physical aggression scores more frequently than girls (p .003); girls showed more verbal than physical aggression (p .01). Direct predominated over indirect aggression in both sexes (both p's .01). Sex differences in relationships of social activity to aggressions were attributed to differences in physical aggression, which was hypothesized to discourage interactions. (Author)
