En la presente investigación se adaptó un procedimiento de evaluación de Reglas de Despliegue Emocional (RDE), basado en escenarios hipotéticos y se aplicó a una muestra de once niños (hombres) con una edad promedio de 9 años. Sólo uno de los once participantes usó RDE y los restantes mostraron un patrón inconsistente de respuestas en cuanto a coherencia entre la emoción sentida y la acción reportada, la preferencia por comunicar o no la emoción sentida y la justificación para comunicar o enmascarar la emoción. Se discuten las implicaciones del uso de escenarios hipotéticos y se señala la pertinencia de involucrar el concepto de conducta gobernada por reglas en el diseño de estrategias de evaluación de los despliegues emocionales.
