More Ways in which we Explain an Outcome...

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.

9. Goals
10. Psychology or mental state.
