  • Man vs Self: The internal struggle of characters to decide whether to do what is right or to do what seems like the best thing for them. One example is when Johnny must decide to turn himself in to the police or to continue hiding with Johnny.
  • Conflicts in "The Outsiders"
  • Man to Man: Problems and conflicts among characters and their family members. An example of this is how Ponyboy feels that his older brother Darry does not understand him. This led to Darry hitting Ponyboy and resentment between them.
  • Man vs Society: Many "Greasers" feel like social outcasts because they are different from the richer "Socs". There is a barrier between the "Socs" and the "Greasers" and they dislike each other. As a result of this, Johnny was once attacked on the street by a gang of "Socs" just for being a Greaser.
