Beliefs in a Just World Scale

 


 According to the just world hypothesis, “people have a need to believe that their environment is a just and orderly place where people usually get what they deserve (Lerner & Miller, 1978, p. 1030).”

Beliefs about a just world may be measured with the Global Belief in a Just World Scale (Lipkus, 1991).

The scale has 7-items, which participants rate on a 6-point basis: 1 = strong disagreement and 6 = strong disagreement about the applicability of an item to oneself.
