  • Interpersonal goal conflict

    Beschreibung: People have different kinds of interpersonal goals, including being dominant and in control, being close and connected, being independent and free, and being led / avoiding responsibility. Sometimes these goals come into conflict, such as when the same person wants to be close to and distant from people at the same time. Psychological theories suggest that these conflicts should be associated with psychological distress and dysfunction. The goal of this thesis is to test this hypothesis. The project would involve using survey methods to assess people's level of interpersonal goal conflict and whether that is related to distress.
