Abstract：The present study aimed to investigate the response patterns of depressive individuals to unfair distribution in the gain and loss situations. The results showed that (1) the rejection rates of both depressive and non-depressive individuals have been significantly improved with the increasing of the level of unfairness; while, the rejection rates of all participants were greater in the loss situation than in the gain situation. (2) Furthermore, compared with non-depressive individuals, the depressive individuals had a greater rejection rate in the gain situation, but such effect was not present in the loss situation. These results indicated that, though the context modulates how both depressive and non-depressive individuals respond to the unfair distribution, the depressive individuals showed higher sensitivity to unfair distribution than non-depressive individuals in the gain situation. The present study is very helpful to understand the interpersonal avoidance and alienation behavior of depressive people in real life.
