Tourette syndrome (TS) frequently involves complex tics with social significance, including imitation or socially inappropriate behaviour. This study explored every-day perspective taking and empathic tendencies in 95 patients with TS and 60 healthy controls. Analyses indicated that both males and females with TS exhibited a different interpersonal reactivity profile to controls, characterised by a reduced tendency to take other people's perspectives, and elevated personal distress in response to intense emotional situations (e.g. people experiencing crises).

Abstract

Tourette syndrome (TS) frequently involves complex tics with social significance, including imitation or socially inappropriate behaviour. This study explored every-day perspective taking and empathic tendencies in 95 patients with TS and 60 healthy controls. Analyses indicated that both males and females with TS exhibited a different interpersonal reactivity profile to controls, characterised by a reduced tendency to take other people's perspectives, and elevated personal distress in response to intense emotional situations (e.g. people experiencing crises).
