Abstract: The subject of this study are the styles of individual behavior in a conflict situation, self-esteem and its correlation with behavior as typically seen for men and women in early adulthood. The author closely examines the phenomenon of self-esteem as the individual's evaluation of themselves, their capabilities, qualities and their position among other people. The author provides a reasoning for the importance of studying self-esteem in men and women in early adulthood, which has traditionally been defined to the age of 20 to 40 years old. The study results presented can be used in psychologist practice and professional training for counseling male and female clients of early adult age in order to improve their competence in conflict situations, as well as to develop special training courses for psychologists, lawyers, sociologists, state civil servants.
The study is based on theoretical and empirical research methods, including survey and analysis, which involves theoretical analysis of psychological studies on the studied phenomena, as well as testing, quantitative and qualitative methods for processing study results, statistical analysis of the data acquired. The methods of statistical processing of information include descriptive statistics (average values count), calculation of significance for criteria of difference using the φ - criterion (Fischer angular transformation) and correlation study using Spearman's rank correlation method. The novelty of the study is based on the need to provide solutions for the prevention and management of conflict behavior of adults that dictates the necessity for a comprehensive study of personality determinants of human behavior in the conflict since the topic of the correlation between self-esteem and personality styles of behavior in a conflict situation is mainly studied in developmental psychology from the perspective of self-esteem of children and adolescents. The author, based to the results of the study, concludes that the behavior of the person in conflict is driven by psychological factors, self-esteem, in particular. Therefore, the formation of proper self-assessment, increasing a low self-esteem, and, on the other hand, lowering it, if over-inflated, will contribute to building a more productive interpersonal interactions. The formation of a new model of behavior, the resolution of interpersonal problems requires a lot of effort and time for both, psychologist, and at the client. Individual counseling, employment training in groups (T-groups) can provide the necessary help to the person in dealing with these problems.
