RIGHT...So now we need study to prove COMMON SENSE! Jesus. I mean, how does this relate back to a childs thought process?

This doesn`t mean that a child `knows` a good person...

I would cite contradicting studies and such... but i really can`t be drating arsed.

I thought they were going to show them pics of mean and nice people doing mean or nice things...not colorful shapes. Too many variables also. Maybe they likes the bright color of the triangle, or the shape. They should have been both the same, but I don`t know how that wouls work because then maybe the babie couldn`t tell which was which...All around not that great of a study.

They used different shapes and colours each time, you can see. Why would age effect what shapes you prefer anyway.

Well, other studies have shown that babies apparently speak a baby language and also use baby sign language. So.. I guess I`m not too suprised.

"maybe babies just prefer triangles to squares?"

That`s what I was thinking.

That`s pretty interesting but I wonder how well they read people and if appearances muddle their logic.

The blocks intentions are to rape the circle. :(
Maybe you have to be an adult to read between the lines.
