Unformatted text preview: of imitative behavior, and the non-aggressive group also showed a high degree of imitative behavior. The authors’ feel their hypotheses were generally supported with results as expected. Overall the groups responded to the experiments as predicted with a strong amount of behavior imitating the models. From a critical point-of-view it is hard to find fault with this experiment, the predictions, or results.
