Tezer, Esin
This study had 267 Turkish university students evaluate (1) the extent to which individuals accomplish their goals via conflict behavior and (2) the preference for becoming friends with these individuals in light of their conflict behavior. The students responded to a questionnaire after reading a story about a five-person group and their conflict behaviors (forcing, avoiding, accommodating, compromising, and collaborating). The results indicated that the person in the story who engaged in compromise was rated as most successful both in accomplishing goals and in establishing interpersonal relationships.
