Is There a Gender Difference in False Belief Development?
Charman, Tony; Ruffman, Ted; Clements, Wendy
Social Development, v11 n1 p1-10 2002
Studied gender effects on false belief development among children ages 2 to 6 years. Found a slight advantage for girls on false belief task performance in both datasets that was apparent in younger but not older children. Language ability could be controlled only in a small subsample and cannot be ruled out as a mediator to this effect. (JPB)
