This meditation offers a way to examine thought patterns in light of Liotti's metacognitive factors. Metacognition, also called mentalization (or "thinking about thinking") is the ability to understand your own thoughts. Liotti's six factors for this skill are identification (mindfulness), relating variables, differentiation, integration, decentration (adopting the perspectives of others), mastery (over your mental states).
