Theory of mind in young human primates: Does Heyes's task measure it?

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (1):122-123 (1998)

Abstract
Three- to six-year-olds were given Heyes's proposed task and theory of mind tasks. Although they correlated, Heyes's was harder; only 50% of participants with a theory of mind reached a criterion of 75% correct. Because of the complex series of inferences involved in Heyes's task, it is possible that one could have a theory of mind and fail Heyes's version
