This paper presents two studies that explore the link between self‐reported conflict management strategies and aggression. It was predicted that conflict strategies involving concern for the needs of the other would be inconsistent with aggressive behavior. On the other hand, conflict strategies that involve coercion and domination were predicted to be positively related to aggressive behavior. Studies using self‐report and behavioral measures of aggression provide support for these predictions.
