Theory of mind is the ability to attribute mental states—beliefs, intents, desires, pretending, knowledge, etc.—to oneself, and to others, and to understand that others have beliefs, desires, intentions, and perspectives that are different from one’s own.
Often couples fight because they fail to understand that their partner may see things differently – not because they are wrong, stupid, misguided or purposely being difficult, but because they don’t have a well developed theory of mind that takes into account that their partners may have different perspectives which are equally as valid, but different, because of different life experiences, different backgrounds, or different genetics.
