There are four types of conflicts: Conflicting Attraction Attraction-repulsion Conflicting Avoidance Multiple Conflicts

Conflicting Attraction or Approach-approach Conflicts :

Conflicting Attraction or Approach-approach Conflicts where there are two desirable but mutually exclusive goals. conflicts in these type are usually resolved by choosing one goal over the other, either excluding one entirely or deciding which to do first. The response to this conflict is either alternation or freezing or blocking. Examples: - Shall I take the charming Perla or the sultry Mary? -Shall I take AB or BSE?

Approach-avoidance Conflict :

Approach-avoidance Conflict - When there is an attraction to an objector state of affairs and at the same time a repulsion towards something associated with it. The situation contains two elements, one of which is very desirable while the other is undesirable and disadvantageous. -the closer the individual is to the goal, the repulsion towards the negative aspects associated with it gets stronger. Attraction-repulsion conflicts usually produced indecisive and vacillating behavior. Examples: -A girl likes to eat ice-cream but she does not to get stout. -A student enjoys school but looks forward to vacation. -A woman wants to marry but will lose her inheritance if she does.

Avoidance-avoidance Conflict :

Avoidance-avoidance Conflict When there are two unpleasant alternatives and one cannot be avoided without encountering the other. Examples: A student does not want to make requirements in school, but neither does the student want to fail the course. Lilia must wash the dirty dished or face parental ire. Carlos must perform a job he hates or go hungry.

Multiple Conflicts :

Multiple Conflicts When there are two courses of action, each of which had both pleasant and unpleasant consequences. Multiple conflicts take a long time to resolve. Generally, these conflicts are more common than simpler ones. Example: A beauty contest winner who is given the opportunity to start a movie career or to travel abroad but is strongly attached to her boyfriend and family. In this situation, the goals are exclusive. She wants both, but cannot have both.
