Babies Imitate Their Confidence

Babies Imitate Their Confidence

Researchers at the University of Concordia in Canada showed that researchers have refused to do similarities to movements of people whom they like to imitate what they see and hear.
In a study published in the journal Infant Behavior and Development, scientists emphasized that infants can distinguish between truth and truth, “they consciously chose not to learn something that they can not trust”.

The study, conducted with 60 infants aged 13-16 months, examined the reactions given to the enthusiasm of some adults who looked at a box by babies who were separated by two groups.

In the first experiment, the adults looked into a big box and expressed their excitement. Later, a box was given to the dolls, wanted to see if it was a toy in the box. Thus, “adults” were assured of which adult was reliable.

A second experiment was conducted with the same adults. In this experiment, adults pressed a light knob with their foreheads instead of their hands. However, this “unreasonable” movement repeated 34 percent of the babies in the first experiment who did not play toy, and 61 percent of the babies who “trusted adults”.

Diane Poulin-Dubois, a scientist, noted that “babies like children can register with them and understand the difference between true and false.”
