Abstract

The social behavior of fifty children from one to five years of age was observed and analyzed for traits that should make up a rating scale for measuring social behavior in young children. The results of the analysis were compared with certain child behavior traits, called by Norsworthy and Whitley, "social" and "non-social" instincts; by Watson, "emotions"; by Bolton, "social traits," and by Gambrill, "social attitudes." A preliminary graphic rating scale of twenty-six traits has been replaced by a more complete scale of thirty traits. The scale has five divisions extending from a decidedly high degree of the trait to a decided lack of the trait. At least three raters make ratings on each child.
