The Actor/Observer Difference The fundamental attribution error does not apply to people’s attributions about themselves to the same extent that it applies to their attributions about others. This actor/observer difference is defined as: The tendency to see others’ behaviour as dispositionally caused; while focusing more on the role of situational factors when explaining one’s own behaviour. E.g., “tell me about yourself” versus “tell me all about the person sitting next to you”
