 Abstract: Perspective taking and judging affordances share similar functional goals when determining whether an action is possible from a location dislocated from one’s current viewpoint. We tested the relationship between the two by measuring reaching affordances made from imagined locations around a table. We manipulated imagined self-location, target distance, and presence and length of an avatar arm, using an immersive virtual environment. First, in conditions without an avatar arm, we aimed to establish a baseline for reaching affordance judgments made from other perspectives, and include a novel assessment of response time for affordance judgments. Second, by manipulating visual arm length, we asked whether a change in body capabilities would influence affordance judgments from perspectives other than one’s own, suggesting a role for embodied perspective taking. Initial results suggest that reaching affordances were overestimated more from one’s physical location compared to imagined locations and response time varied with imagined location and distance of target.
