Attribution, Glaring, Misattribution, Ultimatum Bargaining Game
We used Weiner's attribution-emotion-action model to examine individuals' willingness to seek for another person's face. To induce interpersonal conflict and frustration, participants engaged in the ultimatum bargaining game where they received predetermined offers. The ultimatum bargaining game was conceptually connected to Weiner's model and to a conflict model. Results showed that in conflict situations, participants more likely attributed the Proposer's offer to the Proposer's dispositional traits and volitional control. Participants also reported higher levels of frustration and had a stronger desire to view the Proposer's face. Implications and suggestions for future research are discussed.
