The analysis of researches of the other mind in philosophy, existential psychology and theory of mind studies is provided. The conclusion is substantiated that the relations of opened minds are not necessarily symmetrical. Subjectiveness developing in ontogenesis is based on direct relationship between adult mind and bearing mind. For normal mind development the balance of criticism on the one hand and confidence and suggestibility on the other hand is necessary. Understanding of the other is originally possible due to common intentionality.

Keywords: the other mind problem, theory of mind, self-determination
