Euro-Americans form spontaneous impressions more than East Asians, but why? Americans exceed Japanese on automatic (but not controlled) processes in such trait inferences. But there are no age differences in when spontaneous evaluations emerge in Euro and Japanese infants. Mothers’ social evaluative speech predicts all infants’ preference for prosocial agents. Eye-tracking research is underway.
