The Fundamental Attribution Error

The Fundamental Attribution Error

The Fundamental Attribution Error is a common misconception that can lead to negative emotions and misguided reasoning.

It is easier for us to blame someone's personal traits rather than considering the situational factors at play. This can cause us to overlook important aspects and make inaccurate judgments.

  • People tend to resort to personal attributions instead of analyzing the situation.
  • Negative emotions often arise due to a gap in our adaptive structure.
  • Reconfiguring our thought process can release us from feelings of guilt and blame.
