Exogenous-Endogenous Versus Internal-External attributions, Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin
It is argued that Kruglanski's revision of attribution theory in terms of a distinction between endogenous and exogenous attributions is not superior to the usual distinction between internal and external attributions at the level of scientific conceptualization. His distinction is seen as more appropriate as an hypothesis about the phenomenological manifestation of the core ideas of existing attribution theory. The implications of this argument for advances in attribution theory are discussed.
