Are people more logical or emotional? How do people make judgments? Do males and females see things differently? Can we shape other people's behavior? Are we more alike or more different? Based on science and sound psychological concepts and research, 40 interesting experiments make it fun for kids to learn about what makes people tick. Each experiment, explained with step-by-step instructions, sharpens young people's skills as experimenters, researchers, and observers of human nature. The more teens find out about others, the more they learn about themselves.
Now updated with a new look! The included CD-ROM (for Windows and Macintosh) features all of the reproducible experiments from the book.

About the author (2008)

J. Kincher was born in Oklahoma and grew up in Colorado and California. She received her education in psychology at California State University, San Bernardino. Her interest in psychology began when she was in third grade, but there weren't many psychology books for young children “back then,” so she designed special courses in academic psychology for third grade through high school and created her own materials. She began teaching “Psychology for Kids Playshops” so “kids” could use their natural curiosity about themselves to learn the basics of psychology as an academic discipline and thus be introduced to another area of study in the social sciences. The ideas and materials for her books were developed and tested in the Playshops. She also is the author of the award-winning Psychology for Kids Vol. 2: 40 Fun Experiments That Help You Learn About Others.
