I have a strong sense of justice, but it's harsh.

Very. I know little girls say "that isn't fair" far to often but i took it to heart when it didn't even include me.

I have a moderate since of justice. It's gone from high to moderate. If you want justice in America it costs. A lot more than I can afford.

I said yes initially, but that was based on my own feelings of justice. I would be more inclined to use the word fairness too.

Regardless, the whole this is moot, I suppose, because it's a "no" for me based on your definition below.

My explanation below is just based off personal experiences - I'm sure there are many other things that can cause someone to have a strong sense of justice.

By definition, justice = fairness. If fairness is extremely important to you, I'd say...

A lot of my comments have been reversed lately. I even had a poll about it the other day.

I have a very strong sense of fairness. It's actually a bit of a "thing" for me. But, I also tend to see situations from different sides too.

I was going to say the same thing. I said yes but fairness is a better word. In our society "justice" is often code for punishment.

I have a strong desire for justice (prob closely equated to fairness/not being a dick) but it doesn't always mesh with what the law says is justice.

In terms of justice served? I prefer preventing injustice, but if that's not possible then I want

Someone who has suffered injustice to be made whole, in as realistic a manner, as possible. For the perpetrator, I prefer rehabilitation with a possible punishment, depending on what it is determined was their intent.

I suffer from extreme empathy & sympathy, as well as have high repulsion to harm of others - in most situations but admittedly not all.

Jealous? I don't think so, but I don't always see myself clearly so I guess it's a possibility.

Rereading your definition, I think I should clarify that though I feel more, in general, for a victim, I don't want to throw criminals away. If possible, I want to help them as well. But that doesn't take precedence over helping a victim.

Do you think our modern justice system does enough to help victims?

No, but I think it can't bec of its flaws and loopholes. The intent is there, but the execution is took badly flawed in both directions for either side to get some real measure of justice.

In my experiences, a strong sense of justice typically results from a person having one or more of the following qualities: asymmetrical levels of empathy for victims and "wrong doers" (a lot for victims, little/none for "wrong doers"); high...

levels of repulsion; and intense feelings of jealousy.

I disagree, I feel too much empathy or too much apathy, and intense jealousy would get in the way of justice, because those feelings bias people and justice should be separate from feelings and biases.

I think justice IS feelings and biases.

I have a strong sense of what I feel is justice. That is not necessarily the way everyone else feels.

According to your definition above, I believe mine would be high. Likely, extremely high.

Interesting. Do you consider yourself a jealous person?

No, not at all. I didn't read that part if your definition before I posted my response. I guess what I'm saying is I believe justice should be served fairly and my definition of fair may differ from someone else's.

I passed my response on a different level of empathy. Mine is far higher for the victim and for the wrongdoer.
