Abstract : A single parameter model was proposed to account for the interpersonal process in a triadic conflict situation. The parameter is the estimated probability of a player attacking the stronger of his two attack choices. The model was tested on data that had been collected previously. The points of bad fit were pinpointed and an explanation given. Changes in the experimental procedure were proposed and a more complete test of the model was outlined. (Author)
