    Your conflict management style is... Accommodating
    Congrats, friend! By completing this quiz, you've shown a commitment to managing conflicts and creating positive social environments. According to your responses, your style is accommodating...So what does that actually mean? When conflict comes to a head, you may forsake your own needs to make the other party happy. And because of that, you're more likely to give in to their demands...Although your accommodating style keeps the peace, it's not the most effective for getting your point across.

So how do you actually do that? Start by using body language to communicate your interest: eye contact, leaning in, and smiling. Ask questions and summarize what the other person says!3. Save the JudgementEspecially in tense situations, it's natural to have strong emotions and thoughts about what the other person is saying, but it's safest to save those judgements for later. In the moment, try to keep calm by breathing deeply and leaning back in your seat with both feet firmly planted on the ground.
