Just happened to read this little article on psychological tricks our brain uses to keep us function, and this one stood out:
When you see your actions through your self-serving bias, you attribute your successes to factors you can control, and your failures to factors no one could be expected to manage. If you pass a test, get a raise, or complete a project, you tell yourself it’s because you are smart, or talented, or contributed the most. If you fail the test, get passed over, or see your project crash and burn, you blame a terrible professor, or a myopic boss, or a second-rate team.
Sound like any losing party/candidates you know?
