Attribution of aggressiveness and judgment of behavior as right or wrong
1980 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Thirty empolyees at a Swedish hospital rated a persons aggressiveness and his behavior as right or wrong. The ratings were based on a written story in which reasons for acting, intent and degree of harmwas varied. A 3 x 2 x 2 (Revenge - Selfdefence - No Reason x Intent - No Intent x Harm - No Harm) analysis of variance showed that the ratings were affected by both reason and intent. A socially acceptable reason (selfdefence) produced quite different ratings of aggressiveness than the two other levels of reason. The No Reason-condition was the most different level in ratings of right and wrong. This was interpreted as being in accordance with attribution theory. The abscence of any effect of harm was also shortly discussed, as well as the usefulness of distinguishing betweenintent and causes/reasons.
