态度差异 – 人格冲突的发生也直接关系到个人的态度。由于易怒，傲慢和玩世不恭，员工内部的消极态度可以被考虑。这种对新员工或其他离职员工的消极态度，会极大地影响他们之间的有效沟通。众所周知的事实是，没有人喜欢在负面的人身边，而乐观的或自然乐观的人在与负面态度的人交往时可能会有困难（Jehn＆Mannix 2011）。发现有些员工不断寻找瑕疵或抱怨，而另一些则着眼于寻找解决方案，从而使各方的合作与合作极为困难。
Personality issues have been one of the biggest causes of conflicts in the work place resulting into the delay. Many employees misunderstand or misinterpret the attitude or mannerism of their colleagues and ultimately get offended. The paper highlighted the key reasons behind the increasing instances of personality conflicts and the strategies that can be utilized by the company to mitigate or reduce the emergence of the same. Personality conflicts can be perceived in the situation where a new employee’s actions and words can be mistaken as rude, introverted, or off–putting, when they are just performing or practicing their normal routines or activities. The difference in the beliefs, values, relationships, emotions, gender, personality, and culture are found to be the key factors behind the personality conflicts.
It is also estimated that through being adaptable and not taking things personally can easily avoid the occurrence of personality conflicts in the work place.
Critical and Reflective Discussion
Attitude differences – The occurrence of personality conflicts is also directly associated with the attitude of an individual. A negative attitude within an employee can be considered due to the level of irritability, arrogance, and cynicism. This negative attitude either within the new employee or other exiting employees can greatly affect the effective communication in between them. It is a well known fact that no individual prefers to be around negative persons and an optimistic or naturally upbeat kind of person may have difficulty while interacting with an individual having negative attitude (Jehn & Mannix 2011). It has been found that some of the employees constantly look for flaws or complain whereas other focus on finding the solutions, thus making collaboration and cooperation extremely difficult for each of the parties.
