By affective reactions and inferential processes, emotions have a pivotal effect on individual behaviors in interpersonal conflicts. Theinterpersonal effects of emotions are moderated by conflict schemas in two aspects. Firstly, conflict schemas affect inferential processes of emotions by adjusting the attention resources. Secondly, by moderating individual’s cognitive motivation and perceptions of contextual interdependence, conflict schemas play a role inthe relative predictive power of inferential processes and affective reactions. Further we need to explore various potential emotional effects and strengthen the investigations rooted in Chinese background.
