Conflict is inevitable, but it is how we respond to conflict that is important

Conflict is in our innate lives, where it is conflict that is how we grow and learn to mature and comprehend different perspectives on life. How we respond to conflict is how it defines ones character. Body par 1. Calm and logical approach takes in all sides, reflecting and resolving the situation. John Proctor at the beginning knew that this witch craft was fraud and tried to tell Hale. A parent resolving a conflict between siblings where he/she takes both sides and sees who is in the wrong.

2. Irrational and emotive approach is just two sides opposing one another, black and white no shades of grey, no middle course. In the Crucible accusations of witch craft where there were the accused and the accusers. The 1950s where people were accused of communism in the HUAC.

3. Where these responses clash, tension increases. The court room where John makes Mary confess about Abigail and the lies however back fires John proctor is accused of witch craft. 4. Integrity and morals, defines who we are, internal conflict 5. weak, malicious and conform to society
