Thank you for such an easy to understand explanation and examples of the impact of attribution.
As a Narrative Therapy Practitioner, we explore attribution in all of its layers and contexts to better understand a person's perspective of themselves, others and the world around them. This exploration and unpacking of the many external influences that helped create a problem they may be navigating & the impact of myths like 'rugged individualism' often leads to a preferred narrative of understanding the person was not somehow intrinsically the cause, though yes their choices may have contributed to a problem. This understanding of layers of impact is so freeing because it allows people to see the importance of context.
So helpful in everyday conversations too!
