Self-Assessment I Josh Burghardt August 28, 2008 Everybody experiences conflict with many different individuals, groups, and events, and I am no different. As I think about the conflicts that I have had and how I reacted, the first thing that comes to my mind is that when I get angry, I really blow up. It does not happen very often, and it really only happens with the people closest to me. This includes exclusively family and close friends, always in a private place. I have never let my anger get the best of me at school or work, which tells me that I can control my temper. Also, it’s possible that I allow myself to blow up with those closest to me because I need to let that anger out sometime and I am only comfortable enough to do that around my family and friends. This also shows me that I cannot let my anger build up or I will take it out on someone I care about and I do not want to be that person. I should not let other people slide as much as I do, which will cut down on the amount of built up anger I take out on my family and friends.

Unformatted text preview: This means that I need to confront coworkers more and not let them take advantage of me because I want everyone to like me, which is something I should not care about so much. Many of the arguments that I have are over minor things, but I am too stubborn to give up my point. I need to learn how to realize when an argument should end so that it stays friendly and does not boil into something more than it should. There are quite a few things that I need to work on. I need to learn how to end an argument agreeing to disagree. I also need to stay calm when it is a conflict with someone close to me. When a conflict arises with a coworker or acquaintance, I need to resolve the conflict while not just letting someone take advantage of me. If I can improve on all of these things, my life would have less stress and I would be happier. I wish I had to do this assignment a couple of years ago!...
