Document Summary

Chapter 1- definitions, theories, and plan of the book. She is born with some specific abilities to predict what people can do. She quickly learns that people can change their minds and may make mistakes. These capacities are the result of some innate foundations or predispositions infants have, that facilitate their interactions with people. By about 4 years of age, children produce a variety of internal state terms when describing people"s actions, such as believing, thinking, and feeling. It has been suggested that the use of these terms implies that children hold complex mental states that allow them to attribute internal representations to people (e. g. john believes that the apple is in the cupboard,"". Three-year-olds do not readily understand or talk about beliefs; instead, they focus on the person"s desire (e. g. john wants an apple). Even 2-year-olds understand that people want or desire things, and that therefore they will act to get these things.
