Pluralistic Ignorance<br />“a situation where a majority of group members privately reject a norm, but assume (incorrectly) that most others accept it”<br />Katz and Allport, 1931<br />OR<br />“the situation where 'no one believes, but everyone thinks that everyone believes’”<br />Krch and Crutchfield, 1948<br />
  31. 31. Brainstorming<br />We don’t really realize it, but when we walk into a brainstorm group the chips are stacked against us<br />Meta-analysis shows that brainstorming groups are only HALF as productive as an equal number of individuals working alone (Mullen et al., 1991)<br />Rather than being inspired by each other and building on each other’s ideas, people brainstorming in a group underperform (Brown & Paulus, 1996; Paulus & Paulus, 1997)<br />
  32. 32. Brainstorming<br />This seems to fly in the face of what we have seen in terms of the effectiveness of group brainstorming!<br />Taken at face value, Alex Osborn’s brainstorming rules appear to be effective<br />Express ALL ideas as they come to mind<br />The MORE ideas the better<br />Don’t FILTER ideas and don’t CRITICIZE other’s ideas<br />All ideas belong to the GROUP<br />

  34. 34. Brainstorming<br />SOCIAL BRAINSTORMING provides an analogy for how to improve brainstorming<br />Production blocking is reduced because people canshare ideas whenever they want<br />Free riding can be reduced because eachindividual’s input is tracked<br />Evaluation apprehension is reduced because people are more anonymous<br />Performance matching is reduced because people spend less time focusing on others’ performances<br />Sources: Gallupe et al., 1991; Paulus et al., 1996; Roy et al., 1996; Valacich et al., 1994<br />
