More about this content:

The fundamental attribution error is the tendency we have to attribute causes of other people's behavior to their character rather than to situational factors. In this step, Professor Robert Prentice and his students discuss how we often make snap judgments about others and how we can avoid this by putting ourselves in the other person's shoes and being cognizant of our own mistakes. They discuss how we should remember that everyone makes mistakes and that there are often situational factors that explain why people do what they do."
