Self-construal is an influential concept that has been used in past research to explain culturally different perceptions of individuals. This study discusses independent and interdependent self-construals as well as their relation to conflict management. The researcher’s prediction that an individual’s self-construal type would positively correlate with the decisions they make in a workplace conflict scenario was not significantly supported in this study. Possible limitations are discussed, and the results of the study do suggest that there is possibility for future research and improvement of research design in this theoretic area.
