Inner or internal conflict is the dilemma or struggle within an individual’s mind. This dilemma is often characterized by having to choose between two opposing choices. All people experience this struggle from time to time.
For instance, a student who highly values honesty does not know the answer to a pop quiz. He is experiencing internal conflict because he is strongly tempted to cheat; however, the quote “honesty is the best policy” keeps on reverberating in his mind.
