2.Preoperational egocentrism: An inability to view situations from another person’s perspective.
Example: Children may have trouble understanding why they must share their toys with a guest, or why they must be careful not to hurt someone else’s feelings
Example: Children may play games together without ever checking to be sure that they are all playing according to the same rules
Example: Children may exhibit egocentric speech, saying things without really considering the perspective of the listener
3. Confusion between physical and psychological events: Confusing external, physical objects with one’s own internal, mental ideas.
Example: A child does not comprehend that subtraction is the reverse of (i.e., it “undoes”) addition. The child is therefore likely to learn 2 + 3 = 5 and 5 – 3 = 2 as two separate, unrelated number facts.
8. Single classification: An inability to classify an object as being a member of two categories at the same time.
