People who score high in fairness are committed to equality in their social relations and are compassionate about others. They believe that everyone should get a fair share and that the collective should be united. Far be it from the fair person to cheat others or be unkind. These people are sensitized to social issues and believe others should not be discriminated against.
Fairness manifests in two types of reasoning: justice reasoning - in which the fair person uses logic and weighing of principles to determine was it morally right, and care reasoning - in which the fair person compliments using logic with care, empathy, and relational understanding. Fair people feel discomfort when witnessing injustices, this being one of the manifestations of their empathy.
A fair person is able to find common ground with their significant other and create balance in responsibilities. If one partner is cooking, then the other partner will do the cleaning to ensure no one feels like they have more duties than the other.
These people enjoy exchanging hobbies and experiences between themselves and their partners as it allows both parties to learn about each other and try new things. In a relationship, they believe giving and taking in all aspects is important.
In a disagreement, they are willing and able to see the perspective of their partners and empathize with them, however they expect the same treatment to be reciprocated.
At work, the fair person believes everyone should carry equal amount of opportunities, rather than one person carrying a bigger load. They are likely to help a coworker in need, with the expectation that they will receive the same help in return when needed. These individuals get to know their coworkers and are not afraid to stand up for them if there is an unjust situation.
Fair people have the tendency to take on other's problems as their own and get involved in conflicts where they are not needed. This can lead to them feeling overwhelmed with emotions and feeling frustrated at the idea of not being able to fix the problem.
It is important that those high in fairness conserve their passion for times when it is appropriate to intervene, as to not deplete their energy and be left feeling upset.
To develop fairness, a person must commit to identifying when there are injustices happening around them. They must practice imagining themselves from other's perspectives and begin empathizing with them. Self-reflection on these commitments to fairness can help reinforce it.
Low scorers are more likely to utilize others for personal gain. They don't mind having an unequal playing field because they believe that everyone should work with the situations that they are given. These people view other people's situations as their own individual problems, and prefer to not interfere with struggles that aren't their own.
