Counselor Trainees' Explanations of Behavior: Attributions to Traits, Situations, and Interaction.
Donnan, Hugh H.; Pipes, Randolph B.
Journal of Clinical Psychology, v41 n5 p729-33 Sep 1985
Thirty-seven counselor education graduate students were asked to assign validity ratings to seven possible explanations of what determines behavior. The students assigned high validity ratings to an "interaction" explanation for behavior. Further, they attributed their own behavior to external causes and the behavior of others to internal causes.
