Theory of Mind and Social Behavior: Causal Models Tested in a Longitudinal Study.
Jenkins, Jennifer M.; Astington, Janet Wilde
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v46 n2 p203-20 Apr 2000
Tested competing causal models concerning the relationship between children's social behaviors and theory of mind in 3- and 4-year-olds tested 3 times over 7 months. Found that false belief performance predicted joint planning and role assignment during pretend play, after taking into account initial performance on joint planning and role performance, as well as contemporaneous language ability and age.
