Theory of Mind (ToM) has emerged as a significant theme across various fields in recent decades,

encompassing developmental psychology, social neuroscience, and psychiatry. Despite the pervasive

application of diverse ToM tasks, their psychometric evaluations have yielded inconsistent results across

studies and populations, raising the concerns about the accuracy, consistency, and generalizability of

these tasks in both research and clinical settings. The study underscores the need for robust

psychometric reliability in ToM tasks and the importance of refining the conceptualization of ToM.

Future research should focus on developing ToM tasks that accurately capture the multidimensionality

and variability of ToM abilities, particularly in nonclinical populations.
