Consider the hypothetical scenario,

John thinks he is trying to help his friends. But, if thinks from Jane's point of view, he is insulting all of this friends.

Is there a verb just would convey the same meaning as "thinking from one's point of view"? "Thinking from one's point of view" feels very verbose.
