The Effect of Being Labeled on Subsequent Self-Control in Children.
Toner, Ignatius J.; And Others
Child Development, v51 n2 p618-21 Jun 1980
Investigates the effect of being labeled "patient" among kindergarten, first- and second-grade girls in a self-imposed delay of gratification task making rewards contingent upon stopping further accumulation. Results are interpreted in terms of modifications in the child's self perceptions as a consequence of being labeled by an adult. (RH)
