Examined the relative contributions of internal and external sources of variation in children's suggestibility in interrogative situations. Found that internal sources of individual differences in suggestibility measured on a suggestibility test did influence children's answers during an interview, but that external sources or interview styles had a stronger impact. Cognitive, developmental factors were identified, but not when abuse-related questions were asked or high-pressure interview methods used. (Author/KB)
