Children's Use of Mental State Information in Selecting Persuasive Arguments.
Bartsch, Karen; London, Kamala
Developmental Psychology, v36 n3 p352-65 May 2000
Examined whether and when children use information about others' mental states to invent or select persuasive strategies in three studies. Found older children, but not preschoolers, used belief information in stories to select arguments; and kindergartners' and first-graders' reasoning on false belief tasks suggested the failure to consider mental states was not due to lack of a belief concept.
