Martin, Carol Lynn; Fabes, Richard A.
Developmental Psychology, v37 n3 p431-46 May 2001
Examined whether preschool children's play-partner choices were stable over time and how they influenced behavior. Found that partner preferences were highly sex differentiated and stable over time. Identified two types of consequences of partner choice: a binary effect that influenced differences between the sexes and a social dosage effect that influenced variations within the sexes.
