Material type: ArticleArticleDescription: 283-290 str.Other title: Attributions of partner’s negative behavior and intimate relationship quality [Naslov na engleskom:].Subject(s): 3.02 | 5.06 | intimate relationships ; relationship attribution measure ; relationship quality | intimate relationships ; relationship attribution measure ; relationship qualityOnline resources: Elektronička verzija In: Socijalna psihijatrija 44 (2016), 4 ; str. 283-290Abstract: Causal attributions are crucial in adapting to an ever-changing environment. When the outcome is favorable, attributions help us understand what led to such an outcome so we can repeat those behaviors in the future. Attributions also enable the recognition and avoidance of factors that led to a negative outcome. Partners who are unhappy in a relationship attribute the cause of negative events to the partner, considering the cause to be stable and global. Persons who are satisfied in their relationship judge the cause to be outside of the partner, unstable and specific. Fincham and Bradbury’s Relationship Attribution Measure (RAM) measures attributions in romantic relationships. The participant estimates internality, stability and globality of the causes of 4 described hypothetical negative partner’s behaviors. The aim of this research was to determine the relationship between the tendency to engage in positive or negative partner’s behavior attributions, the perception of partner’s expression of affectionate and antagonistic behaviors and the perception of relationship quality. The sample consisted of 155 students who are currently in a romantic relationship. The results represent the first evaluation of construct validity of the Croatian version of the Relationship attribution measure and indicate its possible applications, as well as providing an empirical verification of the Social Learning Theory in intimate relationships.
