Jones and Harris (1967)

Essay of Fidel Castro‚Äôs rule in Cuba… supportive or critical of Castro. Participants were asked to guess attitude of writers to Castro. Half of participants were told that the essayists were free to choose and other is they were forced to write either pro-Castro or anti-Castro. Participants in choice condition assumed essays reflected genuine attitudes… however even in the no choice condition, they still thought the authors were genuine. This proves that although behaviour was severely constrained by situation, observers still opted for internal attribution.
Weakness of FAE: Miller discovered that Indian-Hindus took situational factors into account for explaining actions of when someone has done wrong, juxtaposing how FAE applies to Americans.
