Adults' Failure on Misleading Weight-Conservation Tests: A Developmental Analysis.
Winer, Gerald A.; And Others
Developmental Psychology, v28 n1 p109-20 Jan 1992

The results showed that adults (1) acquiesced to the misleading implications of the questions; and (2) exhibited greater nonconservation in response to questions about the body than about external referents.
