What is the meaning of Conflicting Link (cognitive or concept map)?
Conflict relationships are a special case of the connotative relationship,
but where the concepts at the ends of each line
cannot co-exist without conflict, or a state of stress being
created. A couple of different conventions are used to denote
conflict, either a solid line without arrowheads (preferably red in
colour) or the link is marked ‘CONFLICT’. Both conventions have
the same meaning.
