Dispositional Attribution Dispositional attribution assigns the cause of behavior to some internal characteristic of a person, rather than to outside forces.

When we explain the behavior of others we look for enduring internal attributions, such as personality traits. This is known as the fundamental attribution error.


For example, we attribute the behavior of a person to their personality, motives or beliefs. Situational Attribution The process of assigning the cause of behavior to some situation or event outside a person's control rather than to some internal characteristic.

More specifically they take into account three kinds of evidence. Consensus: the extent to which other people behave in the same way in a similar situation.

If her friend smokes, her behavior is high in consensus. If only Alison smokes, it is low. Distinctiveness: the extent to which the person behaves in the same way in similar situations.

If Alison only smokes when she is out with friends, her behavior is high in distinctiveness.Not all humans, for example, have the opportunity to explore and establish themselves as easily as others.
