Michelle Garcia Winner – Social Thinking

Social thinking is what we do when we interact with people: we think about them. And how we think about people affects how we behave toward them, which in turn affects how others respond to us, which in turn affects our own emotions.

Whether we are with friends, sending an email, in a classroom or at the grocery store, we take in the thoughts, emotions and intentions of those around us.

Most of us have developed our communication skills from birth onwards, steadily observing and acquiring social information and learning how to respond to the people around us. Because social thinking is an intuitive process, we usually take it for granted!

But for many individuals, this process does not come naturally. And this often has nothing to do with academic intelligence.
