Abstract

Two tests served as selection criteria for "high" and "low" causally oriented groups, the Social Causal Test and the Physical Causal Test. They were administered to 280 sixth graders. The "Highs" (N 90) were defined as those above the group mean on both tests, "Lows" (N 73) as those falling below both means. The 12 item Intolerance of Ambiguity Scale and the 24 item Children's Antidemocratic Attitude Scale were administered to all subjects. The "Highs" showed significantly less antidemocratic attitude and less intolerance of ambiguity than the "Lows". The differences remained significant if subjects were matched on IQ scores.
