Types of conflicts and their classification
Consider the basics
The truth has long been known: how many people - so many opinions. Due to the diversity of human nature, people often quarrel and conflict. With regard to social psychology, the following types of social conflicts are distinguished:
- genuine conflicts, objectively existing and adequately perceived (brother wants to use the basement as a repair shop, and his sister - as a place for privacy);
- conditional (accidental) conflicts, in which the participants in the conflict do not notice the ease of solution (relatives do not pay attention to the additional free space);
- displaced conflicts arise when the participants have hidden motives (hiding behind the dispute over the appointment of a basement, the brother simply wants to dominate his sister and vice versa);
- incorrectly attributed conflicts (mother scolds her son for the fact that he carried out her own instructions);
- latent conflicts (contradiction between relatives is not recognized, but objectively exists);
- false conflicts that have absolutely no objective reasons.
A bit of theory
The types of conflicts also depend on relations between individuals: how a person understands and sees them (cognitive), how he treats them (relations) (affective), how a person enters them (behavioral). It happens that people at work or in the family behave respectfully towards each other, but they have an emotional rejection. That is, with polite treatment, personal dislike remains. In this case, the conflict can not be avoided, as there are difficulties in recognizing the existence of the conflict to the opponent and to himself. Accordingly, the types of conflicts in psychology can not quite clearly answer at what stage the conflicting ones are located, and cause difficulties with the appropriate treatment. For example, it is worth considering situations of inconsistency in matrimonial life.
In the relationship of spouses there are the following types of conflicts:
1) due to different concepts of rights and obligations;
2) due to unmet needs;
3) conflicts associated with inadequate education of one or both spouses.
In principle, the harmonization of rights and obligations is optimally carried out in accordance with the traditional unofficial family code: everything related to repair and construction works,falls to the share of men, the woman is engaged in cleaning and cooking. But even before the marriage, young people may have different ideas about family life. The fewer coincidences in such ideas, the higher the level of the conflict situation. It should be noted that such types of conflicts arise in all families without exception in different degrees of explosiveness.
Ways of Retreat
For many psychologists, there are several basic tenets designed to avoid conflict situations in the family:
- communication without resorting to conflict;
- trust in the family;
- understanding each other;
- normal intimate life;
- having your own home.
Having considered the main types of conflict, you should use the advice of psychologists, as well as delve into yourself in the event of a conflict, because there’s no one to blame for the quarrel of two people.
