Anyone here know if there's a specific name for a logical fallacy that consists of referring to any behaviours as "subconscious" or "unconscious" actions?
For example: "OP, you are a faggot."
"No, i'm not"
"You are, but it's an unconscious action, so you don't know you're a faggot"
feminists trying to sell you the prefrontal patriarchy shit again?
Just wait, /pol/ will answer sooner or later.
In social psychology, the fundamental attribution error, also known as the correspondence bias or attribution effect, is the tendency for people to place an undue emphasis on internal characteristics (personality) to explain someone else's behavior in a given situation rather than considering the situation's external factors. It does not explain interpretations of one's own behavior, where situational factors are more easily recognized and can thus be taken into consideration. Conversely, from the other perspective, this error is known as the actor–observer bias, in which people tend to overemphasize the role of a situation in their behaviors and underemphasize the role of their own personalities.
Actually, yes. I get to the point of being told it's "subconscious", at which point I throw up my hands, and tell them that by that rationale, everything is, and there's no argument and no possibility of one.
At which point...blank stares.
