Fabes, Richard A.; And Others
Developmental Psychology, v27 n5 p858-67 Sep 1991
Preschoolers' appraisals of others' emotions were compared with adults' appraisals. The accuracy of children's appraisals varied with age and with type and intensity of emotion. Children's appraisals were biased toward attribution of causes to external factors. Attributions to internal factors varied with age, emotion, and type of internal factor. (BC)
