The Relation between Individual Differences in Fantasy and Theory of Mind.
Taylor, Marjorie; Carlson, Stephanie M.
Child Development, v68 n3 p436-55 Jun 1997
Examined relation between early fantasy/pretense and knowledge about mental life in 3- and 4-year olds. Found that performance on theory of mind tasks was significantly intercorrelated when effects of verbal intelligence and age were statistically controlled. Individual differences in fantasy/pretense were related to theory of mind performance in 4-year olds, independent of verbal intelligence. (Author/KB)
