Six-Year-Olds' Difficulties Handling Intensional Contexts.
Hulme, Sarah; Mitchell, Peter; Wood, David
Cognition, v87 n2 p73-99 Mar 2003
Four experiments examined 6-year-olds' performance on intentionality stories and one false belief story. Children answered according to their own knowledge in an intentional context, even though they responded by choosing a picture to insert into a protagonist's thought bubble rather than reporting the belief verbally. Children could correctly answer questions about the protagonist's knowledge state and pass a false belief test. Methodological explanations for performance were ruled out. (Author/KB)
