Everyone is entitled to his or her opinion. In addition to this, each person has a variety of rights; including the right to freedom of speech.
Our rights and opinions are one of the reasons why we have conflict in our world today. In fact, conflict has become a part of our society based on this very fact.
By definition, conflict is simply a clash of interest.
Also, conflict can also be expressed as a visible disagreement between two or more persons with regards to their opinions, beliefs and principle.
There are many causes of conflict. For instance, silence may actually result to conflict (and that's pretty interesting).
Note: Silence can also be a source to conflict prevention.
Below are some of the causes of conflicts:
When one is frustrated, he or she is made to feel annoyed and impatient because they cannot do or get what they wish. As a result, they become irritable and are more likely create conflicts.
Note: If such frustration had occurred in a group, such person may intend to harm the group by bringing about conflict within it.
Conflict will likely arise when people have different views or opinions on how things ought to be done.
As an instance, if the leaders of a group choose to maximize their powers by taking decisions outside the guide of their constitution, certain members of this group may rise to oppose the actions of such leaders; and this could result into conflict.
We may have seen or heard about various clashes within a country or state; especially those having more than one ethnic group.
Also, religious conflicts and crises can emanate from the different beliefs of people.
For instance, the so-called boko haram group in Nigeria have been a major source of conflict for many reasons; one of which is their "zero or no value priority" on western education.
At every point in a communication, it is expected that one of the parties will have to be the speaker while the other will be the listener.
Note: In a communication where no one is willing to be the listener; noise and conflicts are bound to arise.
Everyone is entitled to his or her opinion and that must be respected, whether we agree with them or not.
Some people will rather attempt to force their opinion on others which will sometimes result into conflict.
We should also understand that everyone has the right to accept our opinion or not to.
In a family where the need of one person is frequently placed over another, a conflict of interest may arise.
As an instance, if the wife constantly puts priority on the needs of the children before that of her husband; then, there is a likelihood of conflict in such homes.
We cannot have two captains in a ship at the same time.
In the 2019 general election held in Nigeria, a major political party whom was among the favorite to win a governorship election in one of its states ended up being disqualified because they could not provide a single governorship candidate for their party.
This above turnout of event happened because the party had a leadership conflict within its inner caucus.
Personality conflict results when we have persons with similar personality working together. For instance, when we have two persons with pride working together; personality conflict may likely result.
Similarly, when we have two talkative in the same office, none may be willing to listen, giving rise to conflict.
In any relationship where one of the partners cheat on the other, conflict is bound to happen whenever the cheating partner gets caught.
Vices in this case means evil, bad and negative behavior.
One fact about life is: "everyone likes to be treated in a good way". Sometimes people may even fight for others based on how badly they have been treated.
Examples of vices are hate, envy, stealing, pride, covetousness, slot and so on.
Note: Evil brings about chaos and conflict.
