Perspective-taking is a routine and seemingly intuitive part of our everyday social life, yet at the same time, it is a difficult phenomenon to describe, conceptualize, and enhance. This entry considers (1) ways of conceptualizing the primary elements of perspective-taking; (2) reframing perspective-taking as an interactional achievement rather than a purely cognitive skill of the individual; and (3) the relationship between perspective-taking and our ability to imagine possible futures.
