This occurs typically when we are different from one another. We have varied personalities which usually results to incompatible varieties and opinions. However, when interpersonal conflict gets too destructive, calling in a negotiator would help so as to have it resolved. • Intrapersonal conflict Intrapersonal conflicts occurs within a person. The experience occurs in the person’s mind.
When people experience troubles, they have unique ways to handle their pain. And this unique ways are called Defense Mechanisms. It can be good and bad depending on the situation and how the individual handles the pain he/she feels. The Defense Mechanism by Sigmund Fred are Repression: putting aside the pain, trying not to remember it or think about it just to avoid feeling the anxiety or sadness. Denial: not able to accept that you have a problem within in you.
Festinger replaced the term “consonance” instead of consistency and “dissonance” instead of inconsistency. Dissonance is very powerful when we are doing something that against what our belief tell us. Cognitive dissonance is a very powerful motivator which will often lead us to change one or other of the conflicting belief or action. Aristotle says that, human being is a social animal that has different conflicting shades in its personality, taught process, conducting patterns and executing preferences. When conflict occurs, if it is not powerful enough to be solved, people will tend to avoid and stay away from the problem and this might increase the level of conflicts and discomfort.
In situations like these it’s best if we understand our stand properly and choose our course of action. Certain suggestions can be made but a permanent solution cannot be obtained for this particular problem. Quotes on Interpersonal conflicts It has been said by Bolton that “To be human is to experience conflict”. (1996) “Whenever we interact with another person, some of our needs and goals are congruent with theirs and some are incongruent. A conflict of interest exists when the actions of one person attempting to maximize his or her needs and benefits, block, interfere with, injure or in some way make less effective the actions of another person attempting to maximize his or her needs or
There are some forces, which try to keep painful or socially undesirable thoughts and memories out of the conscious mind. These forces are called defense mechanisms. There is a continuous combat between the wish (repressed into the id) and the defense mechanisms. Defense mechanisms are used to protect one from feelings of anxiety or guilt, which arise because one feels threatened, or because ones id or superego becomes too
Perception is vital to interpersonal communication, however, biases and distortions can often impact the accuracy of the interpreted message. Fritz Heider (as cited in Crisp, 2015) claims that “human behaviour is driven by the need to predict and control” (p.11), social information and interactions. This need for prediction and control manifests itself in perceptual distortions, inevitably leading to miscommunication and issues in a relationship, as it did in the issues I experienced between myself and my best friend. Discrepancies between primacy and recency, self-serving bias and selectivity played a significant role in the breakdown of my friendship, however a knowledge of the way these social conditions work may have allowed us to avoid
Externalising has three tendencies which are: â€¢ Overvaluing your contribution to the relationship and undervaluing the contribution of others. â€¢ Criticising others for being different to you rather than appreciating and building on those differences. â€¢ Seeing othersâ€™ sins against you but not yours against them. Acting in this way can cause major problems within your relationships. People generally act this way because they: â€¢ Find it hard to put themselves in someone elseâ€™s shoes - unable to see things from another personâ€point of view.
Cognitive Dissonance Regardless of context, whenever two or more variables contradict each other, it can create intense feelings of unease. This error in consistency can prompt one to feel confused, uncomfortable, and at times even angry. Though within the realm of social psychology, this general discomfort can be overwhelming when concerning the concept of cognitive dissonance. In short, cognitive dissonance is defined as a subsequent feeling of discomfort when faced with two contradictory cognitions, or when a newly formed cognition does not adhere to one’s self-concept. This leaves us to wonder, what path is taken to reduce this discomfort?
CROSS-CULTURAL COMMUNICATION INTRODUCTION If we want to understand a people, so it is necessary to try to put ourselves, as far as we can, in that particular historical and cultural background and It is not easy for a person of one country to enter into the background of another country. So it make (someone) annoyed or a little angry because it is so difficult for someone to immediately accepted by the other party.
