Perceptual Incongruity and Social Interaction as Determinants of Infants' Reaction to Novel Persons
Greenberg, David J.; And Others
Journal of Genetic Psychology, 127, 2, 215-222, Dec 75
A study on the effects of birth order on infants' reactions to novel persons was conducted to test the differing predictions of incongruity theory and social interaction theory. Findings indicated that infants' reactions to novel persons are determined by infants' social interaction within the family during the first year rather than by the number of perceptual encounters.
