The Conflict Dynamics Profile (Individual) is a self-reporting psychometric assessment tool, which examines how a person responds to conflict. It measures ‘hot buttons’ i.e. the behaviours of others that trigger us into conflict, and when we are triggered, the frequency with which we respond both constructively and destructively. It measures 7 constructive responses and 8 destructive with a further distinction between active and passive responses within each category. The results across all responses are compared against ‘the norm’ which indicates whether the person is responding more or less than average.

One of the possible reasons being that the number of workers in unions has reduced from 70% to about 30% in the last 30 years in Ireland.
