Most important, in terms of her future work, was a scale evaluating maternal sensitivity to infant signals from interview data. The top rating of 7 was given to mothers who were identified as excellent informants and provided much spontaneous detail whereas low ratings were given to mothers who seemed imperceptive of the nuances of infant behavior.
