Children's Implicit Personality Theories as Predictors of Their Social Judgments.
Erdley, Cynthia A.; Dweck, Carol S.
Child Development, v64 n3 p863-78 Jun 1993
Fourth and fifth graders viewed a slide show that depicted a boy displaying negative behaviors and that had a negative consistent or a positive inconsistent ending. Children who believed that personality is fixed, but not children who believed personality is malleable, did not differ in their ratings of the boy in the consistent- and inconsistent-ending stories.
