    Yeah because psychological would be something about themselves- I'm honest, kind, naughty etc.

    Ok, well my psychology book gave no mention on Montemayor's study but I had a little look on the internet, if you look at this link:http://www.psychology.sbc.edu/yavari.htm you'll see that in the statement given by the 6 year old girl she said 'I like to eat' and the results said that she gave no psychological answers. That page might be quite helpful to you actually.
    But I will see if I can find a better answer than that for you because that person's experiment had more conditions than yours so that could be why she/he attributed 'I like' to something else. Hope this helps a bit
