For those of you who like print magazines, the November/December 2011 issue of Scientific American Mind, on the book-stands now, has an article about our research. The article is entitled "In the Minds of Others." In it, I show how the results of our research group (Raymond Mar, Maja Djikic, and me, with some other associates) indicate that reading fiction isn't as solitary as it seems. It's social interaction with people of the mind. It has psychological effects, which include understanding people better and enabling us to change ourselves.
