In history, you learned that some decisions made by leaders in a group situation were not always the right or morally correct decisions. Some examples include the atrocities of the Nazi’s, slavery, segregation, Watergate, cults and gangs, along with many others. How could such decisions have been made, especially within a group setting? While none of these decisions were acceptable or condoned, the concept of “Groupthink” helps us understand such mentality. This assignment will assist you in gaining insight into a “Groupthink” mentality.
this assignment, you will describe a situation in which you were involved in a group decision-making process.
|Characteristics of Groupthink|
|Invulnerability||Members feel they cannot fail.|
|Rationalization||Members explain away warning signs and help each other rationalize their decision.|
|Lack of introspection||Members do not examine the ethical implications of their decision because they believe that they cannot make immoral choices.|
|Stereotyping||Members stereotype their enemies as weak, stupid, or unreasonable.|
|Pressure||Members pressure each other not to question the prevailing opinion.|
|Lack of disagreement||Members do not express opinions that differ from the group consensus.|
|Self-deception||Members share in the illusion that they all agree with the decision.|
|Insularity||Members prevent the group from hearing disruptive but potentially useful information from people who are outside the group.|
