Differential Methods of Causal Attributions for Strangers vs Acquaintances.
Sanders, Glenn S.
Journal of Research in Personality, v14 n4 p493-502 Dec 1980

When the behavior was completely inconsistent with extant impressions, the most external attributions were made in the poor fit/high consensus condition. (Author)
