Punyanunt-Carter, Narissra M.; Wrench, Jason S.
Education, v128 n4 p579-587 Sum 2008
The current study looked at the relation between advisee perceptions of advisor's verbal aggression, credibility, and conflict styles. Participants were 153 graduate students who reported their perceptions concerning their advisor. First, the study found that advisee perceptions of their advisor's credibility (competence, caring/goodwill, & trustworthiness) was positively related to advisee perceptions of advisor mentoring and an advisor's use of solution-oriented conflict management strategies. Second, advisee perceptions of their advisor's trustworthiness were positively related to the advisee's perceptions of advisor use of nonconfrontational conflict management strategies. Last, advisees' perceptions of advisor competence were positively related to advisor use of control-oriented conflict management strategies. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
