McDonald, Lorraine; Stuart-Hamilton, Ian
Educational Gerontology, v29 n5 p417-25 May 2003
Adults over 50 (n=77) completed Piaget's Three Mountains Task focused on extrapolating others' viewpoints. Performance significantly decreased and egocentric responses significantly increased with age. Three kinds of errors occurred: miscalculations, egocentrism, or complete breakdown of information processing due to task overload. (Contains 19 references.) (SK)
