English term or phrase: groupthink
Definition from American Psychological Association:
The tendency of a decision-making group to filter out undesirable input so that a consensus may be reached, especially if it is in line with the leader's viewpoint.

Example sentence(s):
  • A group is especially vulnerable to groupthink when its members are similar in background, when the group is insulated from outside opinions, and when there are no clear rules for decision making. psysr.org
  • Another description, as it applies to education and group projects, is that "Groupthink is a process of gradualism that seeks to gently merge the followers into a pack with leaders, the hope being that the leaders will pull up those who typically reside on the low end of the motivation and achievement scale sourcewatch.org
  • Groups experiencing groupthink do not consider all alternatives and they desire unanimity at the expense of quality decisions. Small Group Communication

pemikiran kumpulan

Definition from own experience or research:
"Pemikiran kumpulan" adalah sejenis pemikiran yang ditunjukkan oleh ahli sesuatu kumpulan yang cuba mengurangkan konflik dan mencapai sepersetujuan atau konsensus tanpa menguji, menganalisis dan menilai idea-idea secara kritis.

Example sentence(s):
  • Dalam mengejar kejeleketan kelompok (group cohesiveness), sesuatu kumpulan sebenarnya tidak perlu mengorbankan pemikiran bebas, individu dan kreatif kepada pemikiran kumpulan. - Sentence based on Wikipedia's definition  

Daftar Istilah MABBIM memberikan "kumpulan pemikir" sebagai padanan untuk "groupthink". Ini bukan sahaja padanan yang kurang tepat untuk istilah ini, pada pendapat saya, tetapi juga kerana ini adalah padanan yang diberikan kepada istilah "think tank" dan telah lama dan mantap dipakai untuk istilah tersebut. Kedua-dua ini adalah konsep yang berbeza. Setakat ini nampaknya istilah "groupthink" seperti yang dimaksudkan dalam Bahasa Inggeris masih belum mempunyai padanan dalam BM. Contoh-contoh kegunaan yang saya sendiri temui (di dalam dan di luar Internet) menunjukkan istilah ini sering dikekalkan sahaja dalam bahasa asal. Cadangan saya ini tiada sandaran ilmiah dan kewajaran frasa saya adalah berasaskan fahaman konsep ini dalam istilah asal sahaja.
