"The fundamental attribution error (FAE) is the idea that each of us as an individual is biased toward viewing our behaviors within the context of our circumstances. However, when we view the behaviors of others we attribute their behaviors to who they are as a person or to their character." - Sociology Source
Fundamental attribution, also known as correspondence bias or attribution effect. This phenomenon is seen everywhere in our daily lives. It is human's nature to want to protect themselves, and there are several ways to do that. People tend to provide reasons for their bad behavior, and sympathize with their own situation to make the bad behavior forgivable, then putting down others by blaming their false behaviors. When someone blame other, they also mean that when the same situation comes up, they will do things differently from the wrong ones. It is always easier to say but harder to do.
"Your dog poops on the sidewalk and you realize that you forgot your poop bags. You run home to get a bag and come right back to clean it up. If someone sees you going home, they will automatically think you are an inconsiderate pet parent for leaving your dog’s poop. You know why you left, but the other person does not." - mysanantonio
In society, this phenomenon creates inequality, increases crime and unfair justices, and sets bad examples for children. However, a knowledge of the fundamental attribution error helps individuals to be more effective, humble, and interpersonally gracious to others.
