The concept of thinking is considered across different psychological traditions, and Relational Frame Theory (RFT) is presented as a modern approach to language and thinking that has attempted to provide a behavioral account of thinking as relational behavior. Within this conceptual framework, a preliminary study is presented that is aimed to use the "silent dog" methodology in order to study the effect of thinking on human behavior.

Se considera el concepto de pensamiento a través de las diferentes tradiciones psicológicas, y se presenta la Relational Frame Theory (RFT) como una aproximación moderna al lenguaje y al pensamiento que intenta proporcionar una conceptualización conductual del pensamiento como un comportamiento relacional. Desde este marco conceptual, se presenta un estudio preliminar que intenta utilizar el método del “silent dog” para estudiar los efectos del pensamiento sobre el comportamiento humano.
