Framing Choice As an Opportunity Encourages Situational Attribution

Framing a choice as an opportunity increases the tendency to attribute choices to the situation rather than disposition thereby decreasing the diagnosticity of a choice for one’s self-concept. This increases preference for negative self-concept options (e.g. vices) and decreases preference positive self-concept items (e.g. virtues).
