Incorporation of individual differences in attributions into the study of causal attributions has been successful, most notably with the Attributional
Style Questionnaire (ASQ; Peterson, Semmel, von Baeyer, Abramson, Metalsky, & Seligman, 1982; see also Peterson & Seligman, 1984; Sweeney, Anderson, & Bailey, 1986).
Bias (HAB) and Feelings of Distress (Crick & Dodge, 1996;) includes 10 written vignettes depicting common social conflict situations of ambiguous intent that occur with young children: five for relationally provocative social situations (i.e., someone is not included in an activity, though it is unclear why) and five physically provocative social situations (i.e., someone is bumped from behind, though it is not clear why).
Empirical researchers have also shown that social support, stress, and attributional
style, as well as coping style, are all closely related to an individual's SWB (Yu, Zhou, Fan, Yu, & Peng, 2016).
Biases in Psychiatric Patients, a Religious, and a Control Group in the Assessment of a Hallucinatory Experience: The "White Christmas Test"
If causal attributions are unstable and controllable, one's attributional
thinking (thought process related to deep-seeded beliefs that affect self-efficacy and observed character) can change from negative to positive.
To get a broader picture, we added four more causes to the traditional list of causes found in Weiner's attributional
They had also improved on clinical measures of things like attributional
style - how a person explains life events to themselves - psychological wellbeing and psychological distress.
We see increased demand for information about the attributional
life cycle of forest products.
Likewise, these individual traits, seen as the "virtues," can also be extended to describe characteristics of an organization, whereas their lack or the development of the opposite (known as the "vices," including close-mindedness, dogmatism, and attributional
bias) is detrimental to organizational learning.
Hypotheses 1 and 2 were confirmed, as participants in the SR condition were more likely to report an intention to help and more likely to feel compassionate emotions for the protagonist; the results provide some of the first evidence for this element in the context of Weiner's attributional
model of helping behavior.
The study aimed to focus on why and how parents tend to develop their perceptions about the personality, abilities and interests of their children to understand the Attributional
styles that lead to comparisons and individual differences as perceived by the parents.
In some respects this has been going on at least since Quill and proliferating in some fashion through the late 1980s and 1990s (affiliate and attributional
nexus cases) and more recently in the click-through nexus cases.
