Theory of Mind

 Link:Brain facts.org
           
"You may not be a telepathic superhero, but you can read minds. Your ability to infer other people’s thoughts, desires, and beliefs — and understand that they can be different from your own — is called theory of mind. It develops between the ages of three and six and is important for social interaction and imagination."

    1. Hi Martin,

      I found this little video striking for a number of reasons:

      One being the concern that children spending too much time in front of screens may impede their ability to develop these skills.

      I also thought of Greta Thunberg and wondered at how different her concept of reality is from persons who had developed this ability- taking it further to wondering about the 'reality' she may be presenting because of her lack of comprehension abilities.

      Heck I even wondered if this lack of comprehension was a requirement for on line trolling!
