For some time researchers have focused on processes involved in mind-reading investigation the limitations in what is called automatic mind reading. As a part of mind-reading, visual perspective taking formed the base in the present study.  The study was performed to determining the impact of quality and quantity of others’ perspective on visual perspective taking. For this purpose, 42 participants were selected, and then assigned to two groups randomly. The participants were examined by Visual Perspective Taking Instrument (VPTI). Results showed that the main effects of judgment type, quality perspective and their interactions were significant. This means that participants’ perspectives were judged faster that others’ perspectives and that equal positioning was perceived faster than incomplete and identical positioning. In computing perspective area, results showed that others’ perspectives were being computed automatically, albeit in an irrelevant manner. This automaticity is not limited by perspective quantity. An unexpected result was that judgment about others’ perspective in equal positioning was faster than indifferent positioning. These results to some extent challenge the simulation theory.

Keywords: mind reading, computing perspective, perspective taking, modular processing, simulation theory
