Abstract:This research examines how third parties view conflict situations and how they choose a conflict management style. The influence of two factors was examined: the amount of power that the respondent was assigned and the social value orientation of the respondent. 80 Respondents were randomly assigned to a high or a low power position. Then they were asked how they viewed a fictional conflict situation and what they would do in that situation. Results showed that particularly pro-social respondents were influenced by the assignment of power. Results also showed that powerful individuals think about the conflict situation more carefully and perceive more conflict emotions than powerless respondents. This caused powerful respondents to choose a mediating conflict management style more often than powerless respondents.
