Effective social interaction requires sophisticated mental and motivational strategies. The Social Mind reviews and integrates psychological research on the relationship between people's thoughts and motives - their 'social mind' - and their interpersonal strategies. The research shows that success in personal relationships, group behaviour and strategic interaction are all significantly influenced by how individuals interpret and explain the social world around them. The implications of this research for personal adjustment, organizational effectiveness and clinical, counselling and health psychology are also explored.
