Shame and theory of mind in adults (Master thesis)

Παππά, Φωτεινή-Αικατερίνη

The aim of this research was to investigate the association between two dimensions of shame - externalised and internalised - and Theory of Mind (ToM) in a sample of adults. 127 adult students, 93 women and 34 men (M = 20.06 years) participated in the research. The externalised shame of participants was examined with the Other As Shamer scale (OAS), while the internalised shame was examined with the Internal Shame Scale (ISS). Theory of Mind was examined with standardized adult tests of understanding of complex social situations such as “Strange Stories”, a test of first-order attribution of false belief and tests of second-order attributions of false belief. The outcomes of the research showed that there is no correlation among two dimensions of shame and ToM. Furthermore, age and gender had no impact on these correlations. However, there is statistical significant positive correlation between participants’ performance in two dimensions of shame and among ToM tests. The restrictions and the opportunities for future investigations of the issue are discussed.
