I like the sensible nature of the blog. Now I've been interested in attribution psychology for some time - self-serving bias, fundamental attribution error, etc - but have grown cautious because of studies that show less clear results than once seemed the case. But I'm no expert. Any thoughts?


Hi, Daryl. Thank for saying the blog is sensible. I like that. I think any of the attributions can be good clues as long as we know they are not universal and also situational. Also, the more self-aware a person is, the less likely he or she is to fall into any attribution errors. What do you think?
