- THINK. What people or topics cause you to become defensive? How have you responded? Which (dogmatic, superior, indifferent or controlling) messages did you use?
- DESCRIBE a conflict once using “I” language, and another time using “you” language (as though you are talking to the person with whom you have the conflict). How does your perception of the conflict change based on language?
- Analyze a conflict on one of your favorite TV shows (just one episode). Describe the scenario and provide examples of specific conflict strategies used. What was constructive or destructive in this conflict? How could the characters have improved the situation?
- Test your understanding of destructive thoughts – self quiz on page 275. Recall a conflict in which you and the other person exchanged destructive messages, such as sudden-death statements or dirty secrets. What led to them being said? What impact did these messages have on the conflict? How did they affect your relationship?
- Think of an unsolvable conflict you’ve had. What made it unsolvable? How did the dispute affect your relationship? Looking back on the situation, could you have one anything differently to prevent the conflict from becoming unsolvable? If so, what?
