Scenario: Your romantic partner (boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse, etc.) forgot your birthday! It was yesterday, and the entire day went by without them acknowledging it in any way.
Your task is to make attributions for this behavior. Use the 3 loci of attributions (interval vs. external, controllable vs. uncontrollable, stable vs. unstable) to make explanations. You will make a total of 6 explanations.
Internal loci- My girlfriend forgot my birthday because she is flaky and never keeps track of important dates.
External loci- My girlfriend forgot my birthday because she is swamped with the first week of classes and was buried under a mountain of schoolwork.
