Abstract : The study utilized a three person n-uel, termed a truel, to examine pure uelative conflict, potential uelative conflict, and some possible means for transforming a potential uelative conflict situation into a cooperative situation. The purpose of the study was threefold. First it tested a model of uelative conflict proposed by Cole and Phillips in 1969; second, it examined the strategies employed in a potential uelative conflict situation; and third, it examined some aspects of the interpersonal behavior exhibited when alliances between participants are allowed in the potential uelative conflict situation.
