138 people participated in the researchers’ experiment. They were divided into several groups: “preschoolers” (4-5 years old), “schoolchildren” (9-10 years old) and “adults” (from 18 years old). They watched one-minute videos. The rollers differed in dynamism. One video shows a police officer rescuing animals and arresting a thief, while another shows almost nothing. Participants were then asked which video was longer.

Preschoolers generally rated the longer video as a police video, while adults, on the contrary, said it was shorter than a second. Judging by the results of the research, there is a change in the perception of time in children around the age of seven. Therefore, the perceived duration of something for a small child depends on the saturation of events. However, as he grows older, he becomes familiar with the concept of absolute time.
