Insight into the Justification Hypothesis came when I was immersing myself in the literature on evolutionary psychology, social and cognitive psychology, and psychodynamic theory. The manner in which the Justification Hypothesis forms a hub between these ideas will be spelled out in greater detail in Chapter 4. For now I will share the moment I experienced the proverbial “flash of insight” that ultimately led to the development of the Justification Hypothesis. It was in 1996 when I was a doctoral student in clinical psychology at the University of Vermont.
The Nature of Justification Systems 19 The Nature of Justificatio Systems Although one can always isolate and examine a specific justification, in the real world individual justifications do not exist in isolation. Instead, justifications exist in particular contexts and interlock to form justification systems. Justification systems are networks of linguistically mediated beliefs and values that function to legitimize actions, create meaning, and offer a particular worldview or version of reality.
When you are challenged, what is particularly likely to make you feel insecure or defensive? From the vantage point offered here, self-concept and identity are personal justification systems. The conscious portion of your “private self” is the stream of self-talk you engage in, the portion of your mind that attempts to develop a narrative of what is happening and why. Your global worldview—that is, your language-based version of reality—is made up of both your personal and ideological justification systems.
