Abstract

Visual Spatial Perspective Taking (VSPT) is an individual’s spatial cognitive ability to imagine the relative locations of others, objects or environments from a view point different than his/her own. Previous studies suggest that VSPT skills might be influenced by presence of (non-)agents, gender differences, mental rotation capacities, and social skills with respect to personality traits and variability in Autism Spectrum Disorders. In this research, we created a survey-based VSPT task using Lego figures (agents) and objects (non-agents), and tested 58 (29 females) participants on the basis of their performance scores, Big-Five personality domains (BFI used as a measure) and Autism Spectrum Quotient (AQ).
