As social creatures, we need to belong to various groups. Groups can have beneficial aspects to them but may also include unhelpful characteristics such as social loafing, deindividuation, groupthink, or group polarization of unhealthy attitudes.
Describe a group to which you belong (such as a religious institution, college club, or fraternity or sorority) where an unhelpful group characteristic occurred (either social loafing, deindividuation, groupthink, or group polarization of unhealthy attitudes). Identify and describe the situation, clearly indicating the unhelpful aspect. Then, describe how minority influence could be used to counter the unhelpful group characteristic.
