|Abstract: ||This study examined how attachment styles affected individuals’ conflict management behaviors among Thai workers. The study also examined whether power distance affects conflict management behaviors. The relationship between the status of the conflict partner and conflict management styles was investigated.
The respondents were Thai workers employed in Thai organizations. A self-administered questionnaire was used in data collection. A total of 415 questionnaires were returned. The one-way MANOVA was employed to examine the hypotheses.
Findings revealed that individuals with a secure attachment style demonstrated more integrating and compromising conflict style than individuals with an insecure attachment style. Individuals with a preoccupied attachment style demonstrated more obliging conflict management style than those with a dismissing attachment style. In addition, there was a significance difference between the status of the conflict partner and the preferred conflict management styles of individuals. Individuals preferred using obliging and avoiding conflict management styles when the conflict partner had an elevated status.|
