Outerdirectedness in Children of Three Ages as a Function of Experimentally Induced Success and Failure
Macmillan, Donald L.; Wright, Deborah L.
Journal of Educational Psychology, 66, 6, 919-25, Dec 74
Success and failure were experimentally induced by means of a puzzle task, and subjects were then required to perform two dependent tasks from which outerdirectedness was inferred. Results supported the hypothesis that children shift from an outerdirected to an interdirected problem-solving style as age increases. (Author)
