1) Correspondence bias - we explain others' actions as coming from dispositions, even when situational causes exist.
   2) Tendency is stronger in Western, individualistic societies than in Eastern, collectivist societies.
   3) Correspondence bias is sometimes called the fundamental attribution error.
   4) It is strongest when consensus and distinctiveness are low.
   5) Dispositional causes may be more salient to us.
   6) We tend to underweight external causes of behavior.
   7) We tend to assume internal causes, then use anchoring-and-adjustment.
   8) We tend to assume that we adjust our causal attributions more than others do.
   9) The actor-observer effect - our own behavior is usually attributed to external causes; others' behavior is usually attributed to internal causes.
   10) We are more aware of external factors' impact on our own behavior.
   11) We are less aware of external factors' impact on others' behavior.
   12) The actor-observer effect may contribute to the self-serving bias.
