Perspective taking theory

Storyboard Text

  • Hi, I'm Bob Selman, here's my theory of perspective taking...
  • HOLLY! Get down from that tree!!
  • Selman's theory states that the ability to see another’s perspective develops over time until it is quite sophisticated in adults. It allows us to understand and therefore interact with others.
  • I can understand what they are thinking...
  • Egocentric viewpoint: Level 0 (own view only). Holly will save the kitten as she does not want it to get hurt. Her Dad will be happy.
  • I can understand what they are thinking...
  • It's a good job Holly knows her Dad won't get cross now he's seen the kitten...
  • Social informational viewpoint: Level 1 (others have different info; one perspective only). Holly will save the kitten as she does not want it to get hurt. Her Dad will be angry if he doesn't know about the kitten, but happy when he knows it needed rescuing.
  • I can understand what they are thinking...
  • That poor kitten, I'm so glad it's safe! Cats are important!
  • Self-reflective viewpoint: Level 2 (others' views). Holly will not expect punishment from her Dad as she knows he will understand about the kitten.
  • Third-party viewpoint: Level 3 (external view). Holly should not be punished, but she needs to know her Dad has to understand about the kitten, or he will be angry.
  • Societal viewpoint: Level 4 (cultural/societal values). Holly will save the kitten as we value animals' lives, and Holly's Dad will not punish her because he knows this .
