Subjects at four age levels (kindergarten, fourth grade, eighth grade, and college) made preference judgments for a set of consumer products varying on four dimensions. Though product preferences reflected independently assessed dimension ratings, subjects had preferences on more dimensions than they took into account in the product ratings. Not until late adolescence did subjects integrate their preferences on two or more dimensions.
