Motivational Influence of Behavioral Desirability on Actors' and Observers' Attributions
Lowe, Charles A.; Hansen, Ranald D.
Social Behavior and Personality, 4, 1, 17-24, 76
The proposition that actors favor environmental attribution and observers personal attribution was investigated. Psychology students attributed causality from two perspectives for verbally-described behaviors. It was concluded that motivational considerations mediated actor-observer differences and that perspective differences represent a differential salience of personal causes for both groups. (SBP)
