Disadvantages of Attribution Theory: Distracts the Attention From Our Own Responsibility
We have to understand that attribution theory takes away from us the responsibility of owning up to our decisions.
Many cases like the issues of underdeveloped countries attributing their dire situations to colonialism and now neo colonialism comes to mind.
We do not try to see what role the leadership in these countries provide and how their leadership enabled their citizens to become better people.
If we take the attribution theory on face value, we actually miss the point of our own efforts in mitigating the dire circumstances we find ourselves in.
