The Importance of Distinguishing the Belief in a Just World for Self Versus for Others: Implication for Psychological Well-Being.
Lipkus, Isaac M.; And Others
Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, v22 n7 p666-77 Jul 1996
Two studies examined whether the relationship between the belief in a just world (BJW) and psychological well-being would benefit by distinguishing between the just world for self, for others, and in general. When various measures of the construct were examined jointly, only the BJW for self emerged as the most powerful and consistent predictor of depression, stress, and life satisfaction. (Author)
