March 18, 2024

A new psychological assessment has been developed to measure the endorsement of attitudes related to critical social justice. This was the case in Finland, at least.”The study also uncovered variations in critical social justice attitudes across different demographic and social groups. Lahtinen found a correlation between higher agreement with critical social justice attitudes and increased reports of anxiety and depression. However, these associations were more strongly correlated with participants’ political orientation than with critical social justice attitudes per se. The new research provides unique insight into critical social justice attitudes and their implications in contemporary society.
