    • Examples of times when groups make better decisions…
      When the answer is not clear…
      What programs should be cut in our educational system to save money?
      When is a NASA space shuttle ready to launch.
      Difficult medical decisions: When is surgery helpful or harmful?
      Voting in local, state or national elections.
    • Good Outcomes for the U.S.

    • The Common Knowledge Effect

    • What Increases Collective Intelligence?
      Using Your Old Brain and Your New Brain. Don’t let other’s influence you through emotional appeals.
      Learn to recognize when your emotions are taking over.
      Don’t make snap judgments – wait a few beats and let the new brain kick in.
      Get curious – ask questions and listen.
      Thinking for Yourself.
