Interests vs. Position - Identifying What You Really Want
Your position is how you describe the conflict in its simplest terms. I would have said, "I want to play with the farm." My classmate would have said, "I want to play with the farm." When people are stuck in a conflict, each side tends to have a strong position, and they can seem intractable. I want that farm, she can't have it. We can't share it. That's it. End of story!
