Social Perspective Taking (SPT) is measured through three sub-scales which are the SPT Propensity scale, the SPT Confidence scale, and the SPT Importance scale (24 items total). In the initial study, a performance task to assess social perspective taking ability and an interview to uncover motivations behind SPT were also administered.
