Competing

As a rule, competing involves an active insisting on your own views and possible outcomes that are beneficial for you. Sometimes, this position can be great. For example, when the decision will result in advantages for many people (not just one or a few), or when this decision sounds reasonable. Competing is often used when a person has no time to argue or prove his position. It’s a good choice in the extreme and dangerous situations when there’s no time to argue, because lack of any decision at all can lead to dreadful outcomes. What about your friends?

Collaborating

Collaborating is the most effective and intelligent way to behave in a conflict. However, it works when both sides are willing to take positions of each other into account. It also works when each side is looking at his opponent, like at the ally that can help to come to a right decision, not like at the enemy that should be destroyed by any means.

Compromising

Quite often both opponents are ready to partially sacrifice their interests and manage the conflict without starting an actual war, where only one person can survive. Thus, people are ready to forgive their opponents, to stop insisting on something, and even to admit that their opponent is somehow right. Compromising is a highly effective method, especially when both sides realize that they are equally right, although their views contradict. And they find the only solution possible: to be satisfied with a third position, which might be a temporary outcome, and don’t lose the whole war. What about your friends?

Avoiding

Avoiding can be called an escape from the problem, when one of the sides tries to get rid of the conflict with minimal losses and actions. Usually, this style is used after several failed attempts to prove you’re right. In this case, conflict remains, but disappears for a certain amount of time or even forever. Avoiding is a correct and useful reaction to a long-lasting conflict. Another situation when person can avoid conflicting is the intention to wait, to think of the winning strategy or the lack of desire to solve the problem at all, lack of time and strength to keep going. In this case, the opponent might make the decision for himself. What about your friends? Share this link to learn about their conflict style!

Accommodating

Accommodating appears when one of the sides voluntarily or forcibly refuses to keep fighting. In this case, a person fully or partially give up his position. For example, it happens when a person understands that he wasn’t right, when he’s dependent on his opponent, when the problem is not that significant, or when he wants to keep good relationships with the opponent. Moreover, it’s a good strategy when a person has already suffered from this conflict and wants to avoid more losses, when there’s a high chance to face a negative outcome, or the third person is being involved. The main reason why people use avoiding is the loss of chances to win the fight. What about your friends? Share this test to learn more about them!
