Explanations and Our Place in Society


There is a funny paradox in politics. Many people who are successful or wealthy recognize the combination of talent and circumstances and plain luck that landed them where they are.  Those who are unsuccessful or poor can recognize how things might have gone differently if their circumstances had been different. 
Yet, the recognition that success and wealth do not happen purely on the basis of effort and merit does not change people’s attitudes toward social policy.  While we recognize that there is substantial income inequality in the United States, few people endorse specific policies that would redistribute income and opportunity.
Why is that?
This question was explored in an interesting paper by Larisa Ussak and Andrei Cimpian in the November, 2015 issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. 
They suggest that from an early age, people tend to explain the behavior of groups in terms of characteristics that those people have rather than in terms of the social forces that act on them.  This focus on inherent characteristics rather than extrinsic forces leads people to accept that groups deserve to be in the social position they are in.
The first few studies in this paper looked at 8-year-olds and adults.  They were given descriptions of groups of people from an alien planet.  They were told that the groups had some kind of inequality (for example, one group might have a lot more money than the other).  Then, they were given two explanations for that difference.  One explanation focused on inherent characteristics (one group is smarter than the other).  The second explanation focused on extrinsic factors (one group found a lot of gold).  Participants rated how plausible they thought these explanations were.  (Pilot studies showed that thought each explanation was equally plausible as a description of why one group might be wealthier than another.)  They also rated whether they thought the situation on the planet was fair. 
Both adults and 8-year-olds gave higher ratings to explanations based on inherent characteristics than to those based on external factors.  Of interest, the more strongly that a person preferred the inherent explanation to the external one, the more that they thought the situation on the planet was fair.
Other studies in this series found a similar result with children as young as 5.  In addition, studies found that children given the scenarios and asked to generate an explanation for the difference on their own tended to give explanations referring to inherent properties than to give explanations based on extrinsic factors. 
Interestingly, these differences in explanations are observed when children think about groups, but not about individuals.  When they are told about individuals from a planet who come from different groups and differ on some characteristic (like income), they are equally likely to give explanations based on inherent and extrinsic factors.  So, the effect I have described seems to apply just to beliefs about groups.
One final study manipulated the type of explanation and looked at fairness.  In this study, children were given either an inherent or an extrinsic explanation for a difference between groups on a planet.  Children given an inherent explanation thought the difference between groups on the planet was more fair than children given an extrinsic explanation.
Putting all of this together, when children and adults look at groups of people, they often assume that group differences result from characteristics of group members rather than situational factors.  As a result, they tend to think those group differences are fair.  This suggests that one reason why people often fail to endorse public policies that might help to repair differences between groups is that they think that the differences between groups actually reflect aspects of those groups that are causing the inequality rather than situational factors that public policy might be able to fix.

Though he paid the larger share. issues came up and my husband Changed drastically , staying away from home for days, drinking , things he usually don't do . i was so curious to know what was going on, then i spoke to a colleague of mine that introduced me to QUADHACK. this hacker helped me clone my spouse phone and i was able to keep gps track, sms from over 6 months same as well as his social media ,whatsapp,emails and call logs.

  5. This shows what impact does different negative and fake reviews of best paper writing service and how it can affect the business.
    Reviews or testimonials regarding any service are the only way to get an idea about its quality and credibility. MyAssignmentHelp Review feedbacks from students all over the world. MyAssignmenthelp.com reviews show the dedication and efforts the company put to ensure 100% quality. Although most of the reviews are positive, but there are testimonials with negative feedback as well.
    It is needless to say that if the students are convinced that edubirdie review is not a good, they will definitely not opt for it. Therefore, if the number of negative and fake reviews is increased on reputed sites like essay reviews, the sale can rapidly get down.
    To counter this issue, the only way is to go through or read Argumentative Essay on Essay Writing Services that are posted on the site,
    However, essayshark review and Uk essays review posted on the sites are very small.

  14. IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR THE BEST WAY TO RECOVER YOUR FUNDs HERE IS THE ANSWER. But if you are dealing with an unregulated binary options broker, then you need some expert’s assistance. For losses of 50,000 or more, this would be an option to consider. It actually hurts and bring tears to my eyes when I read comments of scammed victims ripped off by BINARY OPTIONS AND FAKE RECOVERY EXPERT on forums. mail: , Ew5599013 AT gmail.com this information 100% security guaranteed NOTE from klynxx linx CAN ALSO SPY INTO ANY DEVICE

  15. Lies is what I can't stand in a relationship, I suspected my spouse was cheating but she was in total denial. I guess seeing is believing right ? I consulted an ethical hacker CLEVERHACKER.HACK@GMAIL.COM , without physical access to her phone he gave me full access to text, calls, call logs, facebook, whatsapp, snap chat and other social media. To no surprise she's been cheating for months, I'm filing for divorce for the sake of my kids, they deserve stability. I think the little way I can thank him for he service is by recommending him to others having similar problem. You can also text him at (781) 816-9462
