Recent studies have repeatedly shown that interlocutors sometimes fail to (accurately) regard the perspective of their interaction partner, leading to (egocentric) errors in social interaction. However, it remains scarcely investigated how interlocutors can be stimulated to accurately engage in the process of perspective-taking during the interaction that requires perspective-taking to occur. The aim of this project is to fill this knowledge gap by focusing on how the perceptual and conceptual domains of perspective-taking can be facilitated by a stimulated attention to the other’s perspective. Four studies are presented, each focusing on fostering different domains of perspective-taking.
