Abstract

Jordan is an exceptional environment for conflict management. Its geopolitical and historical positions allow Jordan to be a place where different cultures and religions coexist in stable equilibrium. This study explores how two important characteristics of the Jordanian society, the attitude toward nepotistic behavior and the religious motivation, impact conflict management style preferences. A sample of the Jordanian population was surveyed, and a total of 710 individuals participated. The questionnaire was built by integrating previously validated instruments for conflict management styles, religious motivation and nepotism. Age, religion, religious motivation, and nepotism were found to have an effect of conflict management styles. The most preferred style among the Jordanian population was found to be the integrating style, and the least preferred style was found to be the dominating style. The fact that the integrating style was found to be most preferable may be attributed to the Jordanian culture.
