There are Various motives that some of them can help to resolving interpersonal conflicts and others may prevent its resolve. According to the regulation style theory, the motivation for change, i.e. the desire to come out of the current state of conflict, can help to conflict resolution, but there is an opposite motivation, one that prevents the resolution of the conflict, and it is the motivation for contemplation, i.e. the desire to explore and review existing state. The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that for the conflict to be resolved, the change motivation must be stronger than the contemplation motivation. In a correlational design, first the change and contemplation motivations were measured in a sample of 97 undergraduates from Islamic Azad University-Buin Zahra Branch (N » 4000) using the Motivation Style Questionnaire, and then the participants were presented with hypothetical stories about interpersonal conflicts. Regression analyses showed that the priority of change motivation to contemplation motivation: 1. Has a positive relationship with reconciliation motive and a negative relationship with bad feelings, and 2. Reduces the damaging effects of bad feelings on reconciliation motive.
