I1. Blaming Him Or Them? a Study on Attribution Behavior

The current work examines the gender difference in attribution behavior. Results show that males are more likely to blame individuals while females are more likely to blame groups, which can be explained by relational and collective interdependent self-construal. Furthermore, similarity and service failure magnitude moderate the gender effect.
