This dissertation examines the conflict created when an individual's beliefs are in contradiction to the beliefs of others. Specifically, this study examines (1) the distribution of modes of conflict resolution when no response is made salient (a free choice situation) and when one of three responses (independence, conformity, or compromise) is made salient, (2) the emotional consequences of the modes of resolution; i.e., subsequent tension, and (3) the attitudinal consequences of adopting one of the three modes of resolution [TRUNCATED]
