Kwestionariusz stylów rozwiązywania konfliktów
Rocznik: 2009 Tom: 15 Numer: 1
The Questionnaire of Five Styles of Conflict Resolution is presented including the process of its construction and psychometric properties. The questionnaire is based on the classical analysis of conflict in terms of the self-interest and the partner’s interest. It consists of 50 items (each of them being a declaration about frequency of a specific behavior in conflict) which measure behavioral preferences for 5 styles of conflict resolution: Competition, Cooperation, Accommodation, Avoidance and Compromise. Studies on 3 samples (total N= 520) showed high internal consistency of the scales and a replicable factorial solution with a tendency of the Cooperation Scale to overlap with the Compromise Scale (and separate factors for the remaining 3 scales). Intercorrelations among the five scales were consistent with the logic of two independent dimensions (self-interest and partner’s interest) underlying the styles of behavior in conflict. Cooperation and Compromise were most frequently declared as preferred styles of behavior in conflict resolution, Competition was significantly less frequent, although it was more frequent than Accommodation and Avoidance.
