Mind-blindness is inability to appreciate other people’s mental state, impairment in the ability to understand mental states and how mental states govern behaviour.
These deficits result from a distortion in understanding and responding to emotions.
This state involves a specific developmental delay. Children with the impairment vary in their deficiencies, because they experience difficulty in different stages of growth (Hobson).
In developmental psychology, theory of mind is a basic understanding of how the mind works and how it influences behaviour.
Early setbacks can alter proper advancement of joint-attention behaviours, which may lead to a failure to form a full theory of mind, a specific cognitive capacity - the ability to attribute mental states.
