The approach to quantum theory known as QBism notoriously asserts that the quantum state is not even a partial representation of reality, but instead quantifies an agent's subjective degrees of belief about future experiences. Despite its counter-intuitive premise, QBists argue that this interpretation has the potential to illuminate and demystify certain aspects of quantum theory. In this talk I will discuss how `causality' might be interpreted by a QBist, and whether doing so might help us understand the bizarre hypothetical phenomenon of `indefinite causality'.
