A modified version of Kuethe's technique, measuring distances between figures and heights of figures, was employed to study the social schemata of 128 Israeli fifth-graders, 65 boys and 63 girls. Each subject was asked to place a self-figure, plus a fat her figure, or a mother figure, or all three figures, or a friend figure – four separate placements in all – on a sheet of paper. The subject was instructed to choose from three figures of differing heights, one adult figure and one child figure, for the above-mentioned placements. Results showed that the subjects placed child-child figures closer together than other configurations. The girls placed figures closer together, and chose taller figures to represent a friend than did the boys. There was, however, no difference between the sexes in their choice of adult figures.
