In philosophy examples of our use of folk psychology are usually oversimplified. When desire attribution is discussed, for instance, we are more likely to come across desires such as a craving for cigarettes than a desire to get tenure. That is, we are more likely to come across examples of simple desires that require little or no context to make sense than realistic but complex ones that do require an elaborate context. There are methodological reasons for this somewhat exclusive focus. It is an often useful heuristic to try and understand simpler cases before moving on to the complex ones.
