...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.

...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...

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,...
