More generally, what strategy do individuals use to protect the self-image from negative feedback, when addressing the relationship between the self and self-threatening information? Evidence from several sources suggests that individuals weaken their connection with negative information or strengthen their connection with positive information.   The underlying elements that permit negative attribution bias to flourish often stem from a lack of self awareness (of the stresses and inputs influencing behavior) and a lack of self confidence (the calm assertive force that maintains objectivity in light of said influences). The CEO’s stress to meet quarterly earnings may cause a degree of impatience and frustrated reactions to bad news.

Attributional biases typically take the form of actor/observer differences: people involved in an action (actors) view things differently from people not involved (observers). These discrepancies are often caused by asymmetries in availability (frequently called " salience " in this context). III. Attributional Biases A) Bias?
