Conflict is a reality of life when two or more professionals are working together or with others in society. Gender and age are two of the factors that might influence a person’s conflict management style. Other factors can include experience, education, training, culture, etc. This research surveyed 198 law students in Thailand to understand their conflict management styles and to determine whether gender and age are factors in the dominant styles of these respondents.
This study demonstrated that Thais have a strong collaborative orientation and there is no significant difference between the conflict management styles of Thai law students based on gender and age. However, the have significantly different scores for competing and compromising as well as for avoiding and collaborating.
