Interpersonal Construct Differentiation and Conversational Planning: An Examination of Two Cognitive Accounts for the Production of Competent Verbal Disagreement Tactics.
Waldron, Vincent R.; Applegate, James L.
Human Communication Research, v21 n1 p3-35 Sep 1994
Examines three cognitive theories which account for variations in verbal disagreement tactics. Finds that, of 40 dyadic interactions, planning measures strongly correlate with the use of integrative conflict tactics, and the individual difference measure is strongly associated with the quality of plans. Suggests that integrative models are needed to link differences in social cognition, conversational plans, and message behavior. (BS)
