Explored how dominance in the competitive MovieViewer (MV) task related to peer preference and assertive behavior, and whether relations differed for boys and girls. Found that sex interacted with dominance rank to explain peer acceptance but not rejection. High ranked boys were accepted more by peers than low ranked boys, while low ranked girls were accepted more than high ranked girls. Girls, but not boys, accepted low ranked girls. (Author/KB)
