The paper presents the Conflict Resolution Strategies Questionnaire and analyses its psychometric properties. The questionnaire measures individual preferences of strategies of actions in political conflicts. Results of four studies are presented: - 2 studies conducted among the young Polish politicians and -2 studies conducted among subjects representing various levels of education and age groups. The results show that (1) various types of actions undertaken in the midst of political conflict come together in people's minds into: strategies escalating conflicts, cooperative strategies and mediation strategies; (2) scales measuring individual preference for each of these group of strategies are reliable; (3) inter-groups comparisons and correlation with other factors confirm the theoretical validity of these scales. The results also indicate that preference for escalatory strategies are related to high Social Dominance Orientation, in-group bias, nationalism and need of cognitive closure. Preference for cooperative and mediatory strategies are related to preference for equality in social relations, negative attitude towards nationalism but a positive one towards patriotism, higher political knowledge and low need of cognitive closure.
