DevPsy.org Conflicting Examples of Naïve Psychology in Cliché Other terms like “Folk Psychology”, “Folk Wisdom”, or “Theory of Mind” might be used instead of “Naïve Psychology” depending on the research area and the precise meaning a researcher would like to convey. Notice how common sense can lead us to contradictory conclusions. One goal of (scientific) psychology is to find out when and how naïve psychology is true or false. One goal of developmental psychology is to find out when and how we develop naïve psychology and other naïve theories (e.g., biology, physics) Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Out of sight, out of mind. Birds of a feather flock together.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
