...Attribution Theory Attribution Theory, as initially developed by Fritz Heider in the 1950s, does not exist in a vacuum. Its profound influence on several fields of psychology, as well as other fields of study, can be attributed to the setting in which it was developed and by the researchers who expanded on the theory. This paper attempts to summarize key concepts in attribution theory, as well as to explain its influence, fifty years after its formulation.

A baby upon being born in the hospital will have those tiny plastics bracelets where their name will be written for identification while they are in the nursery. The system is pretty straightforward, blue for boys and pink for girls. Even parents who opt to know their baby’s sex through ultrasound allows for an early determination of purchasing choices for the birth of their child. The moment the doctor informs them of the sex creates stability in their mind that will allow for easier choices in the things they will have to buy and the atmosphere they will have to create.

...Attribution Theory Attribution Theory Stereotypical Belief Regarding Women Women are perhaps the individuals with most controversial social issues due to associated stereotypical beliefs against them. One of these includes the idea that “they cannot do as good of a job as a man.” There are many reasons that we could actually say this, and they are tantamount to how we in general entertain the thought of a gendered society led by men (Kimmel, 2000, p.204). This is how we make attribution, by simply trying to assume that there must be certain cause of an event (Forsterling, 2001, p.13). In fact, we noticed how we generally consider men as...

...Attribution Theory Attribution theory is a tool for understanding human behaviors and thoughts and to deduce how individuals interpret the events that they encounter. Attribution theory has proved to be a useful conceptual framework for the study of motivation in educational contexts (Graham, 1991). It deals with what kinds of explanations individuals come up with when they are faced with a situation or a happening. The explanation or the interpretation of individuals about the events they deal with can be attributed to either external or internal factors (Robbins et al, 2006).
