SCT suggests that due to limited cognitive capabilities, affective influence (fear), an egocentric social perspective, and early emotional attachments to individuals perceived as similar to the child, preschoolers prefer their own ethnic group and express dislike toward other ethnic groups. As cognitive development advances, at the age of 7–8, views of people shift to more objective criteria; thus, cognitive maturation encourages social tolerance. Ample findings indicate that in multiethnic nonviolent social contexts, children aged 3–4 from dominant groups are capable of ethnic differentiation, expressing liking for the in-group or even dislike for the out-group.
