Yes, - would you agree that 'selfish' adults are 'aware' of their
actions - by this, I mean they can see the other person's view point,
but choose to ignore it in favour of their own desires? For example,
some criminals may choose to ignore their victim's suffering. Young
children and autistics do not have this awareness. Sharon
