Asian businessman behaves insultingly impolitely at meeting

Are you someone who enjoys conflict?

September 28, 2017
  • Yes
  • I wouldn't’ say I “enjoy” it, but I do think it makes life more interesting at times
  • No, aside from movies or television shows I try to avoid it

Conflict, as a rule, tends to exacerbate the situation around it. While an average person cannot tolerate a state of confrontation, the high conflict person is much more adapted to the moments of confrontation, since they have reduced sensitivity to uncertainty. Also, trouble-makers often have an excessive self-esteem. Such people do not even think of fitting into a group.

Against the background of self-esteem, there is aggressive dissatisfaction with others. Such a person cannot maintain objectivity and flexibility in explaining the actions of others. It is important to see the proneness to a conflict in the character of the specialist during the recruitment, to determine whether in a tense environment he or she will be to calm things down or to exacerbate the situation.

A high conflict person is inclined to see only one way of resolving a conflict, that is, when the group retreats from its position and takes the point of view of the person who is prone to conflict. In this case, the solution to the problem is imposed. The position of a high conflict person may be unwarranted, but they will jealously defend it. When there is such an innate initiator of the conflict in the team, any difficulties can turn into conflicts of a protracted nature.

So, do you consider yourself a high conflict person?
