More Ways in which we Explain an Outcome...
Julien
The article mentions that there are at least 4 things or reasons that people use to explain an outcome: 1. Effort, 2. Ability, 3. Level of task difficulty and 4. Luck. To those main attributional explanations we may add:
5. Situation
6. Ethics
7. Strategy, and perhaps also
8. Group pressure.
These are also used sometimes by people to explain a success or a failure.
 

 
Factors to which we Attribute Achievements

I liked what you added very much, very logical. I think we can add 2 more things how we attribute our achievements which I have personally went through:
9. Goals
10. Psychology or mental state.
