People can also fall prey to cognitive biases, which cause them to make conclusions without considering all the evidence. It could be that people attribute success and failure to personal traits such as intelligence, rather than considering the situational factors. Finally, making assumptions about other peoples’ motivations can also lead to faulty attributions; it’s important therefore not to jump to conclusions and instead consider multiple perspectives before forming any judgements.
Summary: Although attributes are essential to understanding the world around us, they need to be used with caution in order for their accuracy. This means being mindful of possible biases as well as constructing a balanced view using information from multiple sources.
