Note:

The current study is interested in the feelings of personal control during conflict situations with a romantic partner. Previous studies have shown that the level of self-confidence in one's own problem-solving abilities affects the level of relationship satisfaction. This study seeks to determine a relationship between the level of self-confidence and the perception of personal control over conflicts. Also of interest is whether the attachment style of the individual can predict the level of personal control felt in conflicts. Two hundred undergraduate students in romantic relationships, or who have been in a long-term romantic relationship recently, will be surveyed. The author predicts that having a secure attachment style and confidence in one's problem-solving abilities will be related to a high sense of personal control during conflict.
