Reflection-Impulsivity Among School Children in Kuwait

Auther : A.Saleh

One hundred-seventy four (174) 5-9 year old and male Kuwaiti children were administered kagan’s Matching Familiar Figures Test (MFF) for the purpose of studying the utility of the construct of concept tempo cross-culturally. The data collected were compared with data collected in the United States on Children of comparable ages. The following hypotheses were supported by this study and by earlier comparable American studies: (1) There is a general developmental trend toward increasing mean latency and decreasing total errors with age;(2) moderate negative correlation exists between mean latency and total errors, the two dependent measures used by Kagan, Rosman, Day, Albert, and Philips (1964): and (3) the mean latency measures manifest higher internal consistency than do the total number of error scores. There were two main difference between the performance of this sample on the MFF and the performance of comparable U.S.children: (1) 1 U.S. children have higher mean and median latencies and lower total errors than Kuwaiti children of the same age, and (2) mean and median latencies are generally higher and mean and median total errors are lower for Kuwaiti males than for Kuwaiti females. There is an opposite trend Among U.S.children in this case.
