The Effect of the Accessibility of Self-Relevant Thoughts on Attributional Judgements by Allan Fenigstein( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research has established a reliable relationship between self-awareness and causal attribution, I.E., heightened attention toward the self increases attributions of responsibility to the self. It was hypothesized that increased availability or accessibility of self-related cognition would increase causal attributions to the self, although this effect would be due primarily to attributions for positive events. Subjects (n=44) were first induced to use either self-relevant or other-relevant terms in a story construction task. In a subsequent task, they made attributions for hypothetical situations. Self-attributions were significantly greater for those subjects who had been previously "primed" to engage in self-relevant thoughts. The results suggest that when attention is directed toward the self because of either chronic dispositions toward self-consciousness or the expression of self-oriented stories, self-schemata are more likely to become active in the processing of information.
