The psychology of own versus others' treatment: Self-oriented and other-oriented effects on perceptions of procedural justice


Journal Article

This article focuses on how people interpret their own versus others' treatment. Two experiments investigate how perceived procedural justice is affected by procedures that are experienced personally versus those seen to have been experienced by others. The studies show that, at least under some conditions, the treatment of others is as potent a consideration in justice judgments as is one's own treatment. These findings are contrasted with previous insights into the psychology of social justice in general and procedural justice in particular.
