Perception of Verticality by Boys and Girls in Grade 6.
And Others; Johnson, Wallace S.
Perceptual and Motor Skills, v51 n2 p355-58 Oct 1980
Understanding of the principle of verticality was tested by having 246 sixth-grade students draw a pendulum on pictures of an abstract shape similar to a steeple. Girls performed more poorly than boys. Verticality was apparently much better understood by subjects than horizontality, also tested to provide a comparison. (Author)
