Direct Labeling, Tester Expectancy and Delay Maintenance Behavior in Scottish Preschool Children.
Ritchie, Fiona K.; Toner, Ignatius J.
International Journal of Behavioral Development, v7 n3 p333-41 Sep 1984
Investigates the influence on Scottish preschool children's self-control of labels regarding patience given directly to the children themselves, and of the expectations regarding the children's patience provided to adult testers. Childrens self-control was assessed in a task in which each child's possession of accumulating candy rewards was made contingent upon the child stopping further accumulation. (Author)
