Project: Internally funded project

Description

Strategic thinking is a complex skill that involves understanding how others will behave and best responding to those beliefs. It is a crucial determinant of outcomes in human interactions and for the fulfillment of successful lives. Because skills measured at early ages are strong predictors of outcomes in later life (with ability gaps opening up early in the life) a better understanding of the development of children’s strategic abilities can help to explain inequalities in abilities and success during adulthood and contribute to the design of policies. This project identifies the determinants and distribution of strategic abilities in childhood and studies its evolution over time.
