  15. The Turtle: Avoidance • The strength of this style is that this person can easily look past conflicts and realizes most conflicts will solve themselves. They are calm on the outside and help de-escalate emotions in conflict. • The problem with this style is that turtle people tend to deny and avoid conflict altogether. A conflict can get worse if it isn’t addressed.

  17. The Teddy Bear: Accommodation • The strength of this style is how likeable and lovable this person is in most situations. How could you be mad at a teddy bear? They want and need harmony. They will accept blame just to bring peace to angry situations. • The problem is that a teddy bear may be taken advantage of. They just want to be loved by everyone.
