A Study of Children's Aggressive Actions in Six Cultures.
Lambert, William W.; And Others
This six-culture study sought to make a first approximation measurement of differences in personality development and the socialization of these differences in children. The study was part of a larger strategy involving other cultures and methods. A sample of 24 children from each of the six cultures was selected and observed during at least 12 five-minute periods. There was an attempt to attain a "slice of life" which would reflect the modal behaviors engaged in by the sample children and the modal behaviors received by the modal child. The six cultures studied included: (1) a New England Baptist community; (2) a Philippine barrio; (3) an Okinawan village; (4) an Indian village in Mexico; (5) a northern Indian caste group; and (6) a rural tribal group in Kenya. Exhaustive findings are reported on all respects of the "aggression domain" as they compare cross-culturally. (Author/PC)
