Temperament, Environment, and Six-Month Cognitive-Intellectual Development: A Test of the Organismic Specificity Hypothesis.
Wachs, Theodore D.; Gandour, Mary Jane
International Journal of Behavioral Development, v6 n2 p135-52 Jun 1983
Investigates whether temperamental differences mediated infants' responses to the early environment and explores the nature of the relationship between temperament and cognitive-intellectual development. Subjects, 100 six-month-old infants, were observed in their homes three times over a three-week period. Data suggest a greater reactivity to the environment by babies with "easier" temperaments.
