Brody, Leslie R.
Sex Roles, v11 n1-2 p51-59 Jul 1984
Stories were read to 72 elementary age children who then indicated how they would feel as the story protagonist. Boys attributed anger to themselves more frequently than did girls, who more often attributed sadness and fear to themselves. The intensity of both boys' and girls' emotional attributions decreased with age. (KH)
