I don’t like that man. I must get to know him better.

Author: Abraham Lincoln

One of the important factors which determine success in this 21st century is our ability to understand the cause of other’s behaviour. Knowing other people’s moods and thoughts have many advantages. It is only the first step in the process of understanding others. The process by which we see information to know others is called attribution. It helps us to understand the cause behind other’s behaviours as well as our own, at times. In this attribution quotes, Abraham Lincoln says that if you hate someone, it may be because of your error in attribution or prejudice. You should try to know him better which will alter your perception of the person.

Attribution refers to how we as individuals explain causes of events, other’s behaviour. Fritz Heider argued that, as an active perceive of events, an average person continuously or spontaneously makes casual inferences on why the events occur. Eventually, these interference from the environment form our beliefs and sets expectations which help the person to understand better and predict the events that they experience and observe. Having a clear idea of how individuals interpret events and how these interpretations relate to their subsequent behaviour helps us to understand the other person better.

The two main types of attribution are external and internal attributions. Individual engaging in a particular behaviour can have two different perceptions based on these two types of attribution. Personal attributions are called as internal, and situational attributions are termed as external. When an internal attribution is made, the cause of the given behaviour is assigned to the individual’s personality, attitudes, character or action. But the cause of the behaviour is assigned to the circumstance or event When an external attribution is made.

Attributions about people are critical in an organisation because manager’s perception about causes of behaviour may influence manager’s judgements and actions. If a manager relates the lack of effort to employee’s poor performance, then the employee would receive a poor performance appraisal rating and sometimes even terminated from the job.  For instance, managers must often observe employee performance and make related judgements. Conversely, if a manager thinks the lack of skill is the cause for the employee’s poor performance, the manager may provide additional training or coaching to the employee to improve his or her performance. This inaccurate judgement by managers affects the proper functioning of the organisations resulting in a bad performance of the company.

Attribution strongly influences motivation level of the employees. Employees who have the habit of giving credit to obvious things for their success will be reluctant to try out new things. It often results in poor motivation level of the employees. Employees who attribute their success to their personality traits or skills are more likely to have high motivation levels and try out new things and help in innovation.
