Internationality and Knowledge in Children's Judgments of Actor's Responsibility and Recipient's Emotional Reaction.
Yuill, Nicola; Perner, Josef
Developmental Psychology, v24 n3 p358-65 May 1988
Two conflicting developmental accounts of how mental states are used in evaluating actors were tested by varying actors' intentionality, foreknowledge of outcome, and the values of motive and outcome. Findings suggested that children use intentionality before knowledge in judgments of action sequences and that actor's foreknowledge of an outcome influences children's ability to judge the intended/accidental distinction.
