Mentalizing is the process or ability to attribute beliefs and desires to other persons that are different to one-self and be able to predict and explain other peoples actions, i.e., "read the mind of others". This is closely linked to the "intentional stance" and the concept of "theory of mind". Some authors regard the intentional stance as a component of mentalizing.
CogPO describes "Theory of Mind Task Paradigm" as "a task involving the understanding of another's personal beliefs and feelings or forming hypotheses regarding the mental states of others."
