Brehmer,B. Policy conflict as a function of policy similarity and policy complexity. Umeå Psychological Reports, No. 33, 1970. -The experiment tests the hypotheses, derived frcm the results of earlier studies on policy conflict, that subjects with similar policies will decrease their agreement in a policy conflict situation, and that subjects with cogni-tively complex policies will decrease their agreement more than subjects with cognitively simple policies. The results support the hypotheses, and show that the decrease in agreement is due to the decrease in policy consistency which, in turn, is due to the manner in which the subjects change their policies in the conflict situation.
