Child Development, v70 n3 p700-12 May-Jun 1999
Examined relations between temperament, ability estimation, and injury proneness from toddlerhood through school age. Found that children scoring high on Extroversion and low on Inhibitory Control as toddlers and preschoolers tended to overestimate their physical abilities and have more unintentional injuries at age 6. Children low on Extroversion and high on Inhibitory Control tended to underestimate their physical abilities. (Author/KB)
