The interrelation of early experience representations and social perception in adulthood was studied. The study involved100 people (50 men and 50 women). The average age of participants was 26,9 ± 6,046 years. Methods measuring early childhood representations: “A Parental Bonding Instrument” (PBI) (G. Parker, H. Tupling, L. B. Brown; authors' adaptation) and “The Juvenile Victimization Questionnaire” (JVQ) (S. L. Hamby, D. Finkelhor, R. K. Ormrod, H. A. Turner; was adaptated by O. Bogolyubova, R. Skochilov, L. Smykalo). The authors' method “The social perception features' of mother-child interaction” measuring social perception was designed. Data processing: correlation analysis (Pearson and rank coefficients), Student's t-test, ANOVA and nonparametric tests. Results: early experience representations are interrelated with the peculiarities of social perception. Participants with favorable representations who have not been abused by adults and peers or have not witnessed violence are more accurate in interpersonal perception. At the same time, the specificity for the representations about parents in childhood was revealed. Adults who represent their parents as not caring are more accurate in describing the situation with anxious-ambivalent attachment.
