The Effect of Recreation Goals on Conflict Perception: The Case of Water Skiers and Fishermen.
Gramann, James H.; Burdge, Rabel J.
Variations in psychological goals for recreation participation are explored, both between and within activity categories, and related to differences in conflict perception. Support for a "goal interference" model of conflict is found. According to this model, when recreation goals are incompatible, behaviors arising out of one set of goals will interfere with the achievement of goals in the other set, resulting in perceptions of conflict. Implications of this model for recreation zoning practices and the development of leisure theory are discussed. (Author)
