Predictions. On the vertical axis are attributions of happiness following an outcome, and on the horizontal axes are how “good” or “bad” the outcome is. Overall, happiness attributions should increase with the “goodness” of the outcome. Predictions for attributions to oneself are given in solid lines, while attributions to others are given in dashed lines. (a) Predictions from a simple “happier than average” bias that is context-independent. (b) Predictions from an “increased sensitivity” account: attributions to others are more sensitive to changes in the outcome. (c) Combining both (a) and (b).
