Experimental methods involve the researcher altering a variable in the environment and measuring the effect on another variable.
Given the neuroscientific evidence indicating that ToMS has often been found to operate in isolation from MNS, a strong version of this claim seems unlikely to be true. However, interactionists often use these concepts in order to enter into a dialog with the proponents of ToM, or, more broadly, with analytic philosophers of mind and cognitive psychologists.
In another study, by Jenny Radesky and her colleagues40 out of 55 observations of caregivers eating at fast food restaurants with children involved a caregiver using a mobile device.
While the majority of simulation accounts aim to make empirical claims, Jane Heal has defended a simulation account of an a priori nature, claiming that thinking about other minds necessarily involves recreation of the other's point of view Heal, Risks and Benefits: People who participate in psychological studies should be exposed to risk only if they fully understand the risks and only if the likely benefits clearly outweigh those risks.

Obedience as a form of compliance was dramatically highlighted by the Milgram studywherein people were ready to administer shocks to a person in distress on a researcher's command.
The list below exemplifies some of the different instruments used over the years.
Secondly, in order to study the interaction between Type 2 ToM and Type 1 interactionism processes, we need to study actual social interactions and how these unfold over time. The aim of proposing the new integrative framework is, however, not merely to dissolve the ToM vs.
In particular, within-subjects designs eliminate person confounds, that is, they get rid of effects caused by differences among subjects that are irrelevant to the phenomenon under study.
We suggest that real life social interactions are rarely based on either Type 1 or Type 2 processes alone; on the contrary, we propose that in most cases both processes are simultaneously involved and that social behavior moreover may be sustained by the interaction between these two types of processes.
