Adolescents' Reactions to Hypothetical Peer Group Conversations: Evidence for an Imaginary Audience?
Vartanian, Lesa Rae
Adolescence, v36 n142 p347-80 Sum 2001
The nature of early adolescent social cognition as characterized by the theory of adolescent egocentrism was investigated, through three studies, by examining age differences in judgments of hypothetical peer conversations. Findings do not support the notion that adolescents believe others are attentive to and critical of their every move, or that social cognition and perception is egocentric and distorted. (BF)
