Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

A theory in which the behaviour of individuals is assumed to be directed not only by the occurrence of social events and an individual's own feelings, but also by an individual's thoughts and interpretations of those feelings. It assumes that people think about the results and future consequences of their behaviour, and do not react mindlessly to other people, problems, or situations. See also attribution theory.
