Abstract Investigates how the scales of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) combine interactively to predict strategic intentions for handling interpersonal conflict. The MBTI and the Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument (R. H. Kilmann and K. W. Thomas, 1977) were administered to heterogeneous samples of 160 Ss (aged 18-57 yrs) and 180 Ss (aged 17-60 yrs). Combinations of both scales provided reliable results. ETJs (Extravert-Thinking-Judging) preferred competing, EFJs (F?=?Feeling) preferred collaborating, ETPs (P?=?Perceiving) preferred accommodating, and all introverted (I) combinations preferred avoiding except ITPs who preferred compromising. In addition, an interpretable ordered hierarchy from most preferred to least preferred conflict-handling intention was obtained for each of the MBTI groups.
