Perceived Responsibility for Marital Events: Egocentric or Partner-centric Bias?
Fincham, Frank D.; Bradbury, Thomas N.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v51 n1 p27-35 Feb 1989
Conducted two studies to investigate marital satisfaction and egocentric bias in spouses' perceived contributions to activities in marriage. Results from 40 spouses indicated that spouses claimed to make greater contributions to negative relationships events than their partners attributed to them. Results from 50 spouses replicated findings. Perceived contributions and marital satisfaction were strongly related in both studies. (Author/NB)
