Golden Gate Exhibit Hall
A new Bayesian analysis of the Jones and Harris (1967) attitude attribution paradigm is presented. By estimating probability distributions rather than the probabilities of binary events, this technique better matches participants’ inference task. Data patterns in previous cross-cultural comparisons of the correspondence bias are reexamined, and new data are presented.
