Children as little as 12 months are more willing to accept a small gift from a merciful Samaritan than a bigger bad guy. However, if the eccentric character offers significantly more, the little ones will not hesitate to accept the offer.
Babies also laugh at the devil, if he doesIn a research published in Cognition cnmы, two figures (play dolls) were introduced to children and children of eight years of age: one was evil, while the other was a sweet character. Then they told the children that the evil figure would give them two, four, or sixteen stickers, as opposed to the guy who only had one. When there was hardly any difference between the two quotes, the children lightly abandoned several stickers to choose the Jude. However, if the bad guy offered sixteen stickers, the children are already astonishedand they did a business with him. That's it a delicate dilemma Appears at 12-13 months. The children were presented with puppets in which the head had to open a box containing toys. He never succeeded, even though the other actor rushed to his aid, even though a third had slammed the box lid in front of him.
At the end of the presentation, the lovely, helpful figure offered the little ones a biscuit, while the evil character offered two. The 80's of babies would rather just ask for a biscuit so that the lovely doll could play. However, when the evil figure offered eight subtleties, they did not moralize much: they accepted the great offer.
