Predicting elections: Child's play!
- One of three papers from this Science issue to be selected for the Science podcast. - Received extensive world-wide coverage in the media.
In two experiments, children and adults rated pairs of faces from election races. Naïve adults judged a pair on competence; after playing a game, children chose who they would prefer to be captain of their boat. Children's (as well as adults') preferences accurately predicted actual election outcomes. For a podcast on our paper: English: http://www2.unil.ch/visio/?p=80 French: http://www2.unil.ch/visio/?p=81
