PSY 301 Week 2 DQ 2 Attributions
Examine the role of attributions in our social world. What are attributions, and how do we use them in our daily lives? Discuss the differences between internal and external attributions and describe the fundamental attribution error. For example, what would be the explanatory style of a person who makes internal, stable, and global attributions for positive things and external, unstable, and specific attributions for negative things? Also consider the individual who does the opposite; what does this behavior tell us about the person?
