Reputation Management in Children on the Autism Spectrum
Cage, Eilidh; Bird, Geoffrey; Pellicano, Elizabeth
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v46 n12 p3798-3811 Dec 2016
Being able to manage reputation is an important social skill, but it is unclear whether autistic children can manage reputation. This study investigated whether 33 autistic children matched to 33 typical children could implicitly or explicitly manage reputation. Further, we examined whether cognitive processes--theory of mind, social motivation, inhibitory control and reciprocity--contribute to reputation management. Results showed that neither group implicitly managed reputation, and there was no group difference in explicit reputation management. Results suggested different mechanisms contribute to reputation management in these groups--social motivation in typical children and reciprocity in autistic children. Explicit reputation management is achievable for autistic children, and there are individual differences in its relationship to underlying cognitive processes.
