Participants compared the mental capacities of various human and nonhuman characters via online surveys. Factor analysis revealed two dimensions of mind perception, Experience (for example, capacity for hunger) and Agency (for example, capacity for self-control). The dimensions predicted different moral judgments but were both related to valuing of mind. 
Self-Reflective Mind in a Machine: Neural Correlates for Multidimensional Mind Perception
From three different studies, we could find the entropy in Matching Pennies Game (MPG) increasing, owing to the mind perception of the game opponent. Further, we found two components of mindExpand

In this paper, a distinction is introduced between “mind awareness” and “mental state awareness,’ and it is argued that the former at least sometimes belongs to perceptual, rather than cognitive, processing. Expand
Perceiving mental states
It is argued that the authors' awareness of the mental states of other agents is often perceptual in character, and that concepts (including mental-state concepts) can be bound into the contents of conscious perception. Expand
Two motivations for two dimensions of mind
Abstract Effective social interaction requires people to consider the minds of others. The present research suggests that different motivations systematically elicit attention to different componentsExpand
ATTITUDES AND SOCIAL COGNITION Timescale Bias in the Attribution of Mind

How People Attribute Minds to Non-Living Entities
The results of two surveys showed that Japanese youth perceived mind on the same two dimensions as previous studies and that they attributed lower “Experience” to non-living entities than living entities, supporting the view that mind perception structure may be similar among cultures. Expand
The Group Mind: The Pervasive Influence of Social Identity on Cognition
Humans evolved in social groups and are adapted for group living. In this chapter, we review recent behavioral, physiological, and neuroscience research that provides the psychological and neuralExpand
Understanding individual differences in theory of mind via representation of minds, not mental states
It is suggested that theoretical and empirical progress on understanding the mechanisms underlying mind representation can be achieved by adopting a ‘Mind-space’ framework, which can accommodate the representation of whole cognitive systems and may help to explain individual differences in the consistency and accuracy with which the mental states of others are inferred.

Mind perception and stereotype attribution of corporations and charities.
Although not-for-profit organizations were perceived as warmer but less competent than for-profit ones, the former was perceived both as having more experiential and agentic mental capacities than the latter. Expand
Differential patterns in mind perception in subclinical paranoia: relationships to self-reported empathy
In paranoia – and psychopathology more broadly – understanding and addressing distorted mind perception may be one component of restoring social functioning. Expand

What makes us different from animals? Is is that we are aware, can think, deduceand communicate? Daniel Dennett asks what it is that makes us "concious".
Does the chimpanzee have a theory of mind? behavioral & brain sciences
An individual has a theory of mind if he imputes mental states to himself and others. A system of inferences of this kind is properly viewed as a theory because such states are not directlyExpand

If the meaning of the words “machine” and “think” are to be found by examining how they are commonly used it is difficult to escape the conclusion that the meaning and the answer to the question, “Can machines think?” is to be sought in a statistical survey such as a Gallup poll. Expand
