Isn't the fundamental attribution error about how we judge ourselves versus how we judge others?

In other words, if I bump someone else's car while parking, I attribute it to the darkness of the garage. But if someone else bumps my car, I attribute it to their incompetence. That's me making the fundamental attribution error.

With this in mind, it seems like this article is not really a takedown of the FAE so much as it is a rant about "situationalism," which is different.

To me, the concept of the FAE is useful as a reminder about the value of giving others the benefit of the doubt.
