Thus, in the system critique mode, the findings from research on distributive, procedural, and interactional justice indicating that individuals readily distinguish between justice and injustice across a range of dimensions are likely to hold. , 2005, for a review). Finally, once a new assessment of the social relationship or system has occurred in the revision phase, the individual returns to the use phase, and the individual will use the newly formed justice judgment as a new fairness heuristic until a new alarm phase is activated, motivating another round of revision.

For these individuals, radical environmental change or dramatic negative events, in the form of negative interpersonal treatment or the violation of moral mandates, activate the alarm phase and move them into the revision phase of the justice judgment process, where they are likely to change their initial fairness judgment. For individuals who initially form a judgment of unfairness, however, positive experiences, such as unexpectedly considerate and respectful interpersonal treatment or the support and protection of moral mandates, are unlikely to activate the alarm phase because they do not initiate feelings of uncertainty, anxiety, or potential exploitation in the way that negative events do.
