Correlation Analyses

For this case, we would like to investigate the impact of conflict on the quality of work. Research considers there to be two primary types of conflict (1) relationship conflict, (2) task conflict. Relationship conflict is the conflict that occurs between members of the group. This may invoke strong feelings of anger and frustration when dealing with individuals. Task conflict on the other hand looks at the innate ability to solve the task itself. A high task conflict implies an individual may or may not have the necessary skills to accomplish the task. Quality is measured by three variables- pride, ability to check work, and meeting expectations.
