Blurb/Shorttext:
A review of the literature reveals a marked neglect of interpersonal and functionalist considerations related to defensive processes. The theory of interpersonal defense addresses this neglect by providing a model that focuses on patterns of defensive interpersonal behavior and the functional role they play in interactions, although it includes inner processes as well. The present study examines the idea that conflict promotes defense. Surprisingly, there has been little empirical work done on the relation between conflict and defense. We constructed a novel semi-structured role-playing paradigm involving hypothetical scenarios to examine the interpersonal processes of interest. The findings support the ideas that conflict promotes defensive interpersonal behavior and that defensive behavior can be characterized as breaches in patterns of discourse, which should be viewed as motivated, problematic behavior patterns that represent defensive attempts to negotiate conflicts.
