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

grupno mišljenje


Definition from „Grupna dimnamika I“ FPN Beograd:
Grupno mišljenje je tip mišljenja koji se ispoljava kod članova grupe koji pokušavaju da minimiziraju konflikte u grupi i postignu konsenzus bez kritičkog procenjivanja, analiziranja i bez evaluiranja ideja.

Example sentence(s):
  • Grupno mišljenje je takoreći prećutno prihvatanje jednog mišljenja od strane grupe na samom početku odlučivanja a da se debata kasnije vodi samo o opravdavanju već prećutno prihvaćene odluke. - Ekonomista  
  • Grupno mišljenje se sastoji u tome da grupa unapred, na samom početku procesa odlučivanja prećutno donese odluku a da se zatim čitav proces odlučivanja sastoji u opravdavanju i racionalizaciji već suštinski donete odluke (Janis, 1971). - Ekonomski fakultet, Beograd  
  • Grupno mišljenje označava način mišljenja kod kog svaki član grupe svoje mišljenje prilagodjava ranije definisanom ili samo pretpostavljenom mišljenju grupe. Iz ovog mogu nastati situacije da grupa odobrava postupke ili kompromise koje bi svaki član grupe pojedinačno u normalnim uslovima odbio. Grupno mišljenje je izuzetno nepoželjno u organizacijama, jer rezultira lošim, nerealističnim odlukama. Grupno mišljenje je česta pojava, naročito u velikim, a slabo strukturisanim organizacijama. - Blog B92, „Konflikti i NIH-sindrom“
