4-N: Perspective Flexibility Matters: the Influence of Cultural Syndromes on Attribution of Service Failures

Customers with a collectivistic (vs. individualistic) orientation or a long-term (vs. short-term) orientation are likely to attribute a service failure more to service provider’s contextual factors and less to service provider’s dispositional factors. These effects are mediated by the flexibility of perspectives customers take when making a judgment.
