Causal Preferences as a Factor in the Choice and Diagnosis of Social Contingencies.
Patch, Michael E.
Social Behavior and Personality, v16 n1 p11-17 1988
Two laboratory studies examined self- and socially caused behavior. Found that subjects who preferred socially caused behavior were more likely to choose spontaneous interactions with strangers (Study 1) and were more accurate in assessing their own influence over behavior of others in self-disclosure task (Study 2) than were those who preferred self causality.
