Schroeder David A.

Oxford University Press

David A. Schroeder reflects on his most underappreciated work: a paper entitled, “Attributions and attribution-relations: The effect of level of cognitive development.” Published in 1987 in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, the study, done in collaboration with David Johnson, Lydia Walker, and Judi Allen, focused on whether causal attributions were related to subsequent behaviors, whether level of cognitive development imposed a boundary condition on the application of attribution theory, and how an attributor's level of cognitive development might affect not only the nature of the attribution made but also the manner in which those attributions are used as guides for future actions.

Keywords:   David A. Schroeder, attributions, attribution-relations, cognitive development, Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, David Johnson, Lydia Walker, Judi Allen, behaviors, attribution theory
