Abstract

The article purpose is to present and discuss the results of the empirical study on the frequency, structure of women students’ accentuated traits and such traits influence on their conflict management styles. The study was conducted with 104 undergraduate women students aged of 21-23 years from March 2019 to May 2019. Schmieschek Questionnaire and Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument were used. The article present contradictory facts confirming and, at the same time, denying the significant differences in accentuated traits characteristic for women students in Ukraine and in the Russian Federation. So, it confirms the necessity to diagnose accentuated traits for every new sample with certain age, gender, political, socio-economic, socio-psychological and others peculiarities. Seven out of ten accentuated traits (hyperthymia, rigidity, emotiveness, pedantry, anxiety, cyclothymia, excitation) influence to a some degree on women students’ conflict management styles, besides of others factors. Hyperthymia, rigidity and emotiveness influence the most strongly. Pedantry, anxiety, cyclothymia, excitation have moderate influence. Demonstrativeness, dysthymia, exaltation do not influence considerably. Rigidity, emotiveness, pedantry, and anxiety support some conflict management styles. Hyperthymia, cyclothymia, excitation make a barrier for certain styles. Four types of connections between women students’ accentuated traits and their conflict management styles were formed. These are strong attractive (rigidity and competing, emotiveness and accommodating) and strong blocking (excitation and accommodating, demonstrativeness and avoiding), moderate attractive (anxiety and competing, pedantry and competing, dysthymia and avoiding) and moderate blocking (hyperthymia and avoiding, cyclothymia  and  accommodating) types.
