The Effects of Self-Disclosing Communication and Attitude Similarity on the Reduction of Interpersonal Conflict.
Fahs, Michael Lee
The effects of self-disclosure and attitude similarity on the reduction of interpersonal conflict in a modification of the Prisoner's Dilemma Game were investigated in an experimental study of the behavior of 60 undergraduate students. Results supported hypotheses that self-disclosure and attitude similarity would elicit more conflict-reducing behavior than would nondisclosure or attitude dissimilarity. The effects of self-disclosure were much greater than those of attitude similarity, however, and a predicted interaction between these two factors was not found. (AA)
