Conflict Assessment Assessment of Own Conflict Situation My experience/assessment of a conflict situation that I encountered recently is given below: 1. I was recently involved in a conflict with my wife on the subject of buying a diamond for her. While I resisted her desire to force me to buy one for her, she was adamant on getting one at any cost. Tempers went haywire as I called her craving for the diamond as a feminine greed; she called me names that can not be put on paper. 2. Finally, seeing the seriousness of the situation, I had to resort to the compromise style to resolve the conflict. The primary reasons behind my adopting the same were due to the following: My concern for sustaining our relationship.
I was willing to concede part of my stand on the ongoing debate. The win-lose result, which was less than an ideal solution as far as my ego was concerned (and my purse too), was acceptable to me. The compromise was certainly going to help in maintaining our cordial relationship. The conflict was definitely going to end rather amicably. As I understood, the compromise style is ideal for use when: There is no easy solution to vital issues. The persons in conflict are equal in status and have different interests. There is no time-frame associated with the conflict.
3. My wife immediately welcomed my idea of a compromise. She too also displayed her own style of compromise in a very positive manner. Her wholehearted approval of my idea was very effective in the sense that it made both of extremely happy. 4. Having known my own whims and fancies as well as that of my wife, I would have done the same in any number of replays of this sort.

Because, I have now understood that a compromising style invariably helps in ending a conflict rather well. 5. I guess I will opt for the compromise style in most of the conflict situations. While my self-respect may be a little dented in my own eyes, yet in the long run the results may prove worth the effort. Conclusion Out of the five conflicting styles (i.e. competition, avoidance, accommodation, compromise and collaboration), I have found that the compromise style is more effective than the others when there is a absolute need for ending the conflict. I seem to have resolved one of my severe conflict situations through using of this style.
Failure to have done so could probably have lead to very serious consequences. As regards other people, most of them understand the adverse consequence of any confrontation and as such would prefer to end the conflicts rather amicably. Every one of us knows, all is well that ends well!.
