Title Why do People Blame Others? : An Opinion based Survey of a community of Karachi
 
Creator Siddiqui, Naila Usman

Description According to Amanda Watson when the situation is "someone else's fault", then there's little reason to do anything further about it, let alone seek to understand the role that one's own behaviour, feelings or assumptions might have played in bringing about the problem. Blaming is a worldwide problem. People do it without realizing their mistakes. When we blame other people, situation or environment around us for things that happens to us and avoid taking responsibility of our actions, though it is a sign of lower confidence and self-esteem it needs behavioural modification. This study was an attempt to find out opinion, and factors behind a peculiar behaviour called blame game. A small community of married and unmarried men and women were chosen for the purpose. The finding of this study shows that family, education, age, and gender may play a significant role in adopting and avoidance of this behaviour.
