New personality trait that explains the inclination to regard oneself as a victim was discovered.

What is TIV?
The TIV stands for Tendency for  interpersonal Victimhood. This new personality it is common now a days. The person with TIV can always feel they are victim in some situation. The common sample for this personality is when people thinks is so rude for him and they blame life for it. They always feel that they are a victim even they are not.

A victim mindset says that everything bad that happens to them is due to the fault of others. It could be their partner’s, family’s, coworker’s, or friend’s fault. They are continuously complaining about the negative events in their lives. There are some similarities between the two habits, but there are some distinctions as well. Victims are prone to taking things personally. Even if a comment or phrase wasn’t meant for them, they will absorb it as if it were. “What did I do to deserve this?” This question they frequently ask. Take care of your energies and prioritize yourself, even if others think you’re letting them down. The more you know about the subject, the more likely you are to stay on track with your rehabilitation and avoid reverting to your old mindset.

Develop without experiencing severe trauma or victimization

The tendency Interpersonal Victimhood mindset can develop without experiencing severe trauma or victimization. Rahav Gabay and his colleagues illustrate how the social environment is satiated by interpersonal. Breaches that are frequently painful and appear to be unwarranted. One of the sample is stopped while speaking however the behavior is common now a days.  Some people can readily move on from painful experiences and others tend to dwell on them and portray themselves as victims. The authors describe the sensation of being a victim. Then the novel personality trait that affects how people interpret their surroundings. The people sometimes react and interpret in their surroundings by the way how they look on it. The Researcher discover that a certain new personality trait and they explains the inclination to regard oneself as a victim. This new personality was discover by researcher by doing deep research.

Research for Tendency for Interpersonal Victimhood

Gabay and colleagues conducted eight research among Israeli adults to assess the validity of the TIV. This concept is to investigate the behavioral, cognitive, and emotional ramifications of such a personality characteristic. The TIV was first identified as a persistent and stable feature with four dimensions: moral elitism, a lack of empathy, a need for recognition, and rumination in three investigations. This study focus how people reacts, by their emotional in a certain situation. The research also tends to study and investigate the person personality and characteristic.

Following that, two investigations shed light on the cognitive characteristics of people with TIV. Participants in the studies were asked to explore scenarios in which another person treated them badly. Reading a tale about a partner giving them unfavorable feedback. Playing a game in which their opponent took a higher percentage of the wins . But however in the other hand this two investigation has a good result. The TIV is common and it means Tendency for Interpersonal Victimhood where a person interprets a situation where they feels as a victim.

The effects of Tendency Interpersonal Victimhood is, you blame others for the way your life is. The people has TIV, they believe and truly think life is against you. The person always think they have trouble coping with problems in life and feel powerless against them.

Another Investigation of Researcher

We believe the two investigations shed light on the cognitive characteristics of people with TIV.  The participants in the studies were asked to explore scenarios in which another person treated them badly. The tale about a partner giving them unfavorable feedback (Study 3) or by playing a game in which their opponent took a higher percentage of the wins (Study 4). (Study 4).Surprisingly, those who scored higher on the TIV scale were more likely to seek vengeance against the individual who had mistreated them, according to the two research.

The study 4 proves that need for vengeance manifested itself in behavior. The high TIV were more likely to take money from their opponent when given the opportunity, despite being warned that doing so would not boost their own wins. Participants with a high TIV reported more severe negative feelings and a stronger sense of entitlement to immoral action. Mediation analysis shed light on how the revenge process plays out. The higher the individuals’ TIV, the more unpleasant feelings they experienced. The more they felt entitled to act immorally. Only the experience of negative emotions, on the other hand, predicted behavioral retaliation, according to the authors.

Tendency for Interpersonal Victimhood is stable

According to Gabay and colleagues’ findings. They believe the tendency for Interpersonal Victimhood is a stable personality trait linked to specific behavioral, cognitive, and emotional features. The researchers write, “Deeply rooted in relationships with main caregivers,” TIV. According to the researchers, provides a framework for understanding how a person’s interpretation of social infractions might inform victimhood feelings. The research also proves it leads to vengeance activities. These findings could help clinicians manage cognitive biases in the future.

Future research into what happens when people with high TIV levels are in positions of power, and according to the authors, would be particularly fascinating. The researchers wonder if leaders who have a long-standing inclination to regard themselves as victims are more likely to act “victoriously.” The researcher will not stop studying this new personality behavior and find some solution for it because they believe that this discovery has a solution. We believe that researcher will succeed for this research and they will come up for a proof and find a solution. The people think if something bad happen. The first thing come up in their mind is they are the victim.

This is a kind of new personality traits, however it is not the same as bad behavior. That’s why the researcher come up with this research and study people behavior. This behavior is common and it is not a dangerous traits, but researcher trigger to study on this to have a new idea. The idea that can prove this phenomenon.
