  Topological and Euclidean Spatial Features Noted by Children: A Cross-Cultural Study
 
 
Titel: Topological and Euclidean Spatial Features Noted by Children: A Cross-Cultural Study
Auteur: Jahoda, Gustav

Paginering: Jaargang 9 (1974) nr. 3 pagina's 159-172
Jaar: 1974
Inhoud: The question explored in this study is whether the spatial-perceptual difficulties experienced in some cultures could be partly accounted for in terms of a persistence of predominantly topological functioning. An oddity-choice task was devised consisting of one set of regular and another of irregular figures such that responses could be classified as topological (T), Euclidean (E) or “unrelated” (U), the last indicating failure to categorize figures consistently. A total of 415 children aged 4-12 were tested in Hong Kong, India, Scotland and Zambia. Few significant age trends but highly significant cultural and sub-cultural differences were found. Contrary to expectation, T responses were roughly constant while the proportion of both E and U responses showed systematic cross-cultural variations. There was evidence that it is U responses rather than the proportion of E responses which directly reflect spatial ability. The factors producing cultural and sub-cultural differences are discussed.
