Solution

In approach-avoidance conflict to the individual is faced with a goal that has both positive and negative values. So he is both attracted to and repelled by the same goal. It is the most difficult conflict to resolve. for e.g., Samir wants to take up a job as the salary is excellent but the position doesn't have job security.

In such a situation three possible reactions may occur -

  1. Give importance to the positive value and choose that goal.
  2. Give importance to the negative aspect.
  3. Avoid the goal altogether. The person has to accept the consequences of his/her choice.
