FUNDAMENTAL ATTRIBUTION ERROR look up translate image
The attribution of the causes of others' behaviors to personal factors (personality, beliefs, attitudes and values) and the causes of one's own behavior to situational factors. The attributor underestimates the causal significance of situational pressures on the others' behaviors and underestimates the significance of personal factors on one's own behavior. (Johnson & Johnson, pg.598)
