Attributing Behavior to Persons or Situations

  • Attribution Theory – Basic Covariation
  • Explain the behavior of other people by breaking down our understanding/explanation of their behaviours to factors about them, and factors related to their environment/surroundings.
    • Internal (dispositional attribution) – about them
    • External (situational attribution) – environment
    • When we consider our own behaviours, we are more likely to blame our behaviour on external factors.
      • This is called attribution theory – explaining behaviours around us.
