What is the difference between B.Ev and B.Ev-D?

To use B.Ev, the researcher must first identify why questions or explanations (e.g., in diaries, novels, thought protocols) and then code the behaviors about which the speaker wondered why they occurred or the behaviors that the speaker explained.

For example:

Here is a paper that uses B.Ev: Malle, B. F., & Knobe, J. (1997). Which behaviors do people explain? A basic actor-observer asymmetry.Journal of Personality and Social Psychology,, 72, 288-304.

To use B.Ev-D, the researcher need only identify statements that describe a behavioral event (not an explanation or wondering).

For example:

Here is a paper that used B.Ev-D: Malle, B. F., & Pearce, G. E. (2000). Attention to behavioral events during social interaction: Two actor-observer gaps and three attempts to close them. Manuscript submitted for publication.
