A Comparison of Aggressive-Rejected and Nonaggressive-Rejected Children's Interpretations of Self-Directed and Other-Directed Rejection.
Zakriski, Audrey L.; Coie, John D.
Child Development, v67 n3 p1048-70 Jun 1996
Three studies examined the hypothesis that aggressive-rejected children are unaware of their social status because they are self-protective when processing negative peer feedback. Found that aggressive rejected boys could accurately assess others' social status, but aggressive rejected boys and girls were more unrealistic in assessing their own status than were nonaggressive rejected subjects, supporting the hypothesis.
