Children's Social Desirability Judgements about Ingratiation Tactics.
Bryan, James H.; Sonnefeld, L. Joseph
Fifty-eight children (mean age 11 years), 22 of whom were diagnosed as learning disabled, were administered a questionnaire in which scenarios were presented involving various ingratiation tactics toward three types of targets (parents, teachers, and peers) and were asked to rate each tactic as to its social desirability. Results indicated that the social desirability of the items were judged similarly by learning and nonlearning disabled children. Both children and adults judged tactics in the context of target or setting and appeared to agree as to the desirability of particular tactics toward particular targets. Tables with statistical data are included. (SBH)
