Because if you have you have felt conflict!!! Conflict how does it start ??? Interpersonal conflict occurs when two people have incompatible needs, goals, or approaches in their relationship. Communication breakdown is often the main source of interpersonal conflict. However, very real differences occur between people that cannot be resolved by any amount of improved communication. Common sources of human conflict • Money • Power • Communication • Values and Beliefs Types of conflict Economic conflict- involves competing motives to attain resources. Each party wants to get the most that it can, and the behavior and emotions of each party are directed toward gain. Types of conflict • “Personality conflict” refers to very strong differences in motives, values or styles in dealing with people that are not resolvable. For example, if both parties in a relationship have a high need for power and both want to be dominant in the relationship, there is no way for both to be satisfied, and a power struggle is created. Unresolved power conflict usually recycles and builds to the point of relationship breakdown and termination. Types of conflict Value conflict- involves incompatibility in ways of life, ideologies – the preferences, principles and practices that people believe in. Each side asserts the rightness and superiority of its way of life. Types of conflict Power conflict- occurs when each party wishes to maintain or maximize the amount of influence that he exerts in the relationship and the social setting. It is impossible for one party to be stronger without the other being weaker, at least in terms of direct influence over each other. Thus, a power struggle ensues which usually ends in a victory and defeat, or in a “stand- off” with a continuing state of tension.
