An Information-Processing Approach to Attribution of Responsibility
Brewer, Marilynn B.
Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, 13, 1, 58-69, Jan 77
The research literature on defensive attribution of responsibility is reviewed within the framework of a nonmotivational information-processing model which proposes that attributed responsibility is a function of the difference between the perceived contingent probability (congruence) of an outcome, given a perpetrators' behavior, and the noncontingent probability (prior expectancy) of that outcome.
