The goal of this paper was to find a way to predict cyberbullying based on an assessment of the emotional insensitivity of university and college students. In addition, the goal was to study the intermediate mechanisms of regulating the relationship of emotional insensitivity and cyberbullying. The fundamental basis of this study was the assessment of emotional insensitivity using the method of "Determining the signs of emotional insensitivity". This assessment was made using a questionnaire that included three parts: callousness, indifference, and lack of emotion. This research has shown that empathy mitigates the adverse effects of emotional insensitivity on the processes of justification of immorality and according to the correlation analysis, there is a negative effect of the justification of immorality on cyberbullying. This study is an important step in revealing the emotional characteristics of students who are inclined to engage in cyberbullying. It is shown that the phenomenon of justification of cyberbullying is one of the potential mechanisms by which emotional features begin to affect the ability of students to engage in cyberbullying. Attention to the phenomenon of justification of cyberbullying reveals the relationship of emotional characteristics and cyberbullying. The conclusions of this study can be the basis for successful psychocorrection of students engaged in cyberbullying. The scientific novelty of this research is to reveal the mechanisms of interaction of emotional insensitivity, empathy and justification of immoral behaviour of students engaged in cyberbullying.
