Explanatory Attribution Theory

Explanatory Attribution – People seek to justify events that occur by assigning meaning to certain factors. (Pursuit of meaning)

Exemplia gratia: If someone crashes a car into a tree, that person might ask God why this occurred. That person seeks to attach a meaning to the event in order to justify it.
