Abstract

The purpose of this study was to discover if the verbalizations of three, four, and five-year-old children in response to six picture- stories involving social conflict would be either predominantly dominative or integrative. The sample included 80 young children, three years six months to five years four months, 48 boys and 32 girls, from two different sources. Each of the 80 children responded to a series of six picture- stories individually and verbalizations were tape recorded and analyzed to find if they were predominantly dominative or integrative. Analysis of the data by Chi-square test indicates that: The subjects used significantly more domination than integration. Boys, compared with girls, used significantly more dominative than integrative verbalizations. There were no significant differences between the two groups nor between younger and older children in the number of dominative and integrative verbalizations used.
