KELLEYS THEORY OF CASUAL ATTRIBUTION
Here we explain why people behave as they do!!!
It is believed that an individual’s action is caused by internal or external factors, which is based on 3 types of Information.
Consensus: degree to which other people behave in the same manner
Consistency: degree to which same person behaves similar in different times/situation
Distinctiveness: degree to which same person behaves different in different situations
FACTORS THAT INFLUENCE PERCEPTION
- Perceivers Characteristic: (Age, attitude, values, beliefs, personality, Experience)
- Perceive’s/Targets Characteristics: (Nature, Size, Location, Sound, Motion, Distance)
- Situational Factors: (Time, Work & Social Settings)
FUNDAMENTAL ATTRIBUTION ERROR:
The error takes place when the importance of external factors are UNDERESTIMATED and the importance of internal factors are OVERESTIMATED.
E.g.: Supervisor assuming the cause of high rate of accident is employee carelessness (internal) ignoring the possibility of the old equipment, which are in poor condition (external).
Here individuals attribute success to internal factors & blame failures to external factors.
