My name is Larisa Heiphetz from Harvard University and I presented my research at the APS 23rd Annual Convention in Washington, DC.
In two studies on belief-based preference, 6-9-year-old children reported preferences for religious in-group members and for peers who shared their religious, factual, and preference-based beliefs. These experiments demonstrate preferential treatment in children when others differ in mental states rather than perceptual cues.
