Egocentrisme, visuele complexiteit en perspectief nemen
MetadataShow full item record
Spatial perspective taking of children has been researched a lot over the years but there is a wide range of used research methods in which visual complexity, locomotion skills and mental rotation is not always considered while measuring spatial perspective taking skills (Borke, 1975). During this experiment, participants of 5- to 9-year-olds were asked (N = 177) to choose the picture containing the same visual orientation as a small plastic boy had within a scenario with one or several objects. A regression analysis showed a relation between age of children and their score on the perspective task. 5-year-olds were able to complete simple tasks when the orientation of the plastic boy corresponded to those of the participants. When the amount of objects increased, young participants had more difficulty with the task.
