A small child in the three years understands when a man is doing him a favor. This means that three-year-olds already have the germ of strategic thinking. According to scientists from the Ludwig-Maximilian University.
In total, the study involved 40 children aged 3-5 years. In the experiment, it was necessary to reward the animals, and then to distribute the award among the other animals.
Already by the age of three most children understood the essence of the job and treated him as an adult. The kids tried to distribute the reward evenly between the toys, taking away the richest gifts, and distributing them to others.
