The purpose of our study is to examine which verbal and/or non-verbal behaviours are related to self-reported perceived influence. Observational data were taken from videotaped discussions of nuclear families with two adolescents, conducted in their homes. The discussion was based on a scenario where they have won some money to spend at a family restaurant. Our results indicate that the amount of time spent talking and mutual gaze most consistently related to self-reported perceived influence across the decision stages in a family decision-making situation.
