Can anyone describe a board game using these mechanics? Is it sarcasm-based?
Blood Rage? Tons of units die every turn but it’s a pretty relaxed atmosphere because you can benefit from winning or losing battles.

They're two different metrics.

High Conflict refers to competitiveness and games that are back-stabby. The counterpoint is Low Conflict.

Relaxed is the counterpoint to Strategic, which refers to games with complex, long-term plans and strategies. That suggests that Relaxed refers to quicker, on the fly plans and less complex strategic play.

So High Conflict, Relaxed might be King of Tokyo, Smash-up, or Fluxx.

It is just the preliminary survey at this point, so it isn't stored in your profile. They'll be using this data to improve the percentages and fuel the game recommendations later.
They've updated it now and it is on my profile.

Interestingly my top primary motivation is Conflict and my top secondary motivation is... Cooperation.
