José Pestana, Sofia Menéres, Maria João Gouveia, Rui Filipe Oliveira

Resumo


Reading the Mind in the Eyes Test (RMET) é uma tarefa de Teoria da Mente utilizada para avaliar a capacidade de compreender estados mentais de terceiros, tanto em populações normativas como clínicas. O presente estudo teve como objectivo traduzir para Português (Europeu) a versão adulta revista do RMET, investigar a validade dos itens desta versão e diferenças associadas ao género. A versão revista Inglesa foi traduzida para Português e foram realizados 5 estudos piloto de forma a chegar a uma versão final Portuguesa do teste. Após estes procedimentos, 130 participantes adultos (71 mulheres) responderam a uma versão computorizada do RMET. Trinta itens mostraram uma distribuição de respostas adequada, enquanto os restantes seis itens não foram de encontro aos critérios de validação interna considerados. As médias das pontuações obtidas nesta versão do RMET foram semelhantes às conseguidas tanto na versão original revista do teste como noutras traduções. Não foram observadas nesta amostra diferenças significativas entre géneros. Investigações futuras deverão explorar indicadores adicionais de validade e fiabilidade deste instrumento.

Palavras-chave


RMET, Teoria da mente, Cognição social.
