Learning about the world through others is often a safe and often efficient form of learning. It allows us to learn about negative consequences without experiencing them ourselves and to make use of other’s knowledge. We can learn through others by observing their behavior as well as the consequence of that behavior. In this talk I will briefly present my research on learning about threat and safety through others. I will also present research tackling the question of the relevance of demonstrator ability for the efficiency of observational learning.
