Negative Peer Reactions from the Perspective of the Reactor.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v84 n3 p314-21 Sep 1992
Two studies involving 125 sixth graders and 28 fifth through seventh graders examined negative social reactions from the perspective of rejecting peers. The more children perceived atypical students to be responsible for idiosyncracies, the more anger and less sympathy they reported. Implications for improving social acceptance are discussed. (SLD)
