People in Western cultures such as the U.S., Western Europe, Canada, and Australia tend to commit the FAE more often than those in Eastern cultures such as Japan, Korea, and China. The reasons for this are that in Eastern cultures, the norms and values are such that people tend to look to the situation to explain another person’s behavior. However, in Western cultures, norms and values such as independence have influenced perceptions such that people tend to more readily make dispositional attributions. It should be noted that some studies have found no cultural differences in terms of likelihood of committing the FAE/Fundamental attribution error.
