The consideration of justice in this book started from the assumption that a justice motive exists and that the BJW is indicative of this motive. Individuals with a strong justice motive perceive justice as an important guideline for their behavior and gain satisfaction from (re-)establishing justice. In other words, a strong justice motive is a necessary condition for individual fairness and motivates individuals to strive for justice when confronted with justice-relevant situations. Throughout this book, it was shown that the strength of the BJW—and especially the personal compared to the general BJW—indicates the strength of this implicit justice motive (which can be distinguished from explicit or selfattributed justice motives, assessed by value preferences).
