The aim of our study was to explore phenomenology and identify correlates of justice sensitivity from a victim's perspective (JSvictim) among young men and women. The hypothesis was that the victim position as a personality trait is accompanied by adverse emotional states and certain worldviews which make the subject less resilient. The findings of our study show that the victim position as a personality trait becomes a risk factor for resilience, especially in women.

Keywords: justice sensitivity, victim sensitivity, victimization, gender psychology, psychological well-being, resilience

Column: Experimental Research
