Abstract
Theory of Mind (ToM) research demonstrated 3- to 4-year old children to show false belief (FB) understanding in forced-choice or anticipatory looking behavior. While anticipation is claimed to reflect implicit ToM knowledge which develops early and is not consciously accessible, children s forced choice behavior is believed to represent explicit ToM which allows for conscious access and is seems to be associated with linguistic competence. The present thesis tested the association of children s implicit and explicit ToM in a three-response options FB task, an informant parental questionnaire, and the relation to linguistic competence (224 children, 2 - 6 years)....
