Many conflicts can be conceived of as resulting from a divergence of values. On the assumption that there exists a values-conflict link, findings from values research should stimulate the scientific investigation of conflict in general and of conflict styles in particular. Since recent studies into the structure of values (Schwartz, 1992) closely relate to so-called facet theory, it seems reasonable to reconsider conflict styles from a facet perspective before trying to formulate hypotheses about the supposed relationship. This is accomplished by falling back on Rahim’s (1992) theoretical approach.
