Most Underappreciated

Miles Hewstone

Oxford University Press

Miles Hewstone describes his most underappreciated work: a paper with Jos Jaspars entitled “Covariation and causal attribution: A logical model of the intuitive analysis of variance.” Published in 1987 in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, the paper explored how lay perceivers combine different aspects of information in reaching a “causal attribution”; that is, how they decided to attribute a known effect to one or more possible causes. The model proposed by Hewstone and Jaspars was the first to emphasize that it was patterns of consensus, consistency, and distinctiveness that mattered, not main effects. Hewstone reflects on the lessons that may be learned from his story.

Keywords:   Miles Hewstone, Jos Jaspars, causal attribution, covariation, consensus, consistency, distinctiveness, effects
