We're all flying drones here in the office right now.
When a drone is facing us, we have to press left to go right, so we got into a discussion about how we have to imagine ourselves in the "pilot's seat" for our muscle memory to react and move in the correct direction. It doesn't seem like "putting oneself in another's shoes," as it's seems more specific or relevant to spatial awareness. Is there a word or phrase for this?
Edit: I'm not looking for synonyms for perspective, point of view, or anything like that. I'm looking for the name of the ability to do it. As an example, "spatial awareness" covers your ability to be aware of your own self in your surroundings. I'm looking for something that covers any external reference point or perspective.
It's like a combination between spatial awareness and theory of mind.
