This test was inspired by the THOMAS-KILMANN conflict modes study but has completely different pairs of statements, scoring algorithm, and result scales. Its results allow us to quite accurately predict the reaction of a testee in various conflict conditions.
The authors of the test believed that people should not aim to avoid conflicts but manage them competently. They claimed that there are two arguments for a person in resolving conflicts:
the degree to which a person tries to satisfy the needs of others;
the degree to which a person during a conflict tries to meet their own interests.
Understand your behavior better with the Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Modes
Each person creates their own balance system of these interests when solving a conflict. Such skills as knowing and understanding one's own character will help to avoid or resolve problematic conflict situations.
All six modes of handling conflict are useful in various situations, and each represents a set of useful social skills.
To pass the test, you will have to choose one of two statements. Neither of the answers is correct or wrong. In many cases, neither the "A" nor the "B" statement may be very typical of your behavior, but please select the response which you would be more likely to use.
