Studies: Americans tended to explain behaviors in terms of peoples’ dispositions (e.g., a person’s gender and education). East Asians tended to show a preference for attributing behavior to situational factors (e.g., environmental events). They were also more likely to use situational information to predict other people’s behavior.
