Theorpy of social exchange (due today).
Yes. There are behaviors I react differently to depending upon how they feel. A good relationship may make me more open to minor issues, and less likely to get in the way of conflicts. However, my view of someone may change if I have had negative experiences with them in the past. In this case, it might make me less willing to show compassion or forgive. My reaction can be affected by the behavior of the person. For example, if they are rude or aggressive I would probably respond based on my level of trust and respect for them.
Overall it is natural for one’s feelings towards another person affect their reactions different situations . This bias, while not always ideal, can provide useful insights into relationships. It allows us to recognize the underlying issues and address them properly.
