Pleasure associated with cognitive mastery as related to childrens conceptual tempo



Pleasure associated with cognitive mastery as related to childrens conceptual tempo



Child Development 47(3): 881-884



Pleasure associated with cognitive mastery was studied in relation to conceptual tempo in 3rd- and 4th-grade boys and girls. At the time of the child's initial response to each item on the Matching Familiar Figures test (MFF) the intensity of his facial affect was rated by the examiner. While there was no difference in affect scores among conceptual tempo groups in response to correct MFF choices, reflective children displayed significantly less pleasure than impulsive children when their initial response was incorrect. The difference in affect manifested in response to correct vs. incorrect task solution also tended to be greater for reflective children than for all other subjects. Boys displayed less pleasure than girls when their initial MFF response was incorrect.
