160 Examples of Attitudes

 , updated on
An attitude describes an individual's state of mind with respect to a situation, person or thing. These are highly specific such as an employee's attitude towards a particular task. It is common for the same individual to adopt a completely different attitude depending on the context. For example, an employee who is friendly to one coworker and hostile to another. Attitudes are situational and shouldn't be confused with the character of an individual. Likewise, attitudes are intentional and shouldn't be confused with emotions that are more often involuntary states. The following are common examples of attitudes.
