  30. 30. Deindividuation<br />
  31. 31. 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 &apos;no one believes, but everyone thinks that everyone believes’”<br />Krch and Crutchfield, 1948<br />
  32. 32. 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 />
  33. 33. 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 />So, why doesn’t it work as well as we think?<br />production blocking<br />Loss of productivity while waiting to speak<br />Loss of motivation as others contribute<br />free riding<br />evaluation apprehension<br />Presence of others suppresses off-the-wall ideas<br />performance matching<br />Work only as hard as others seem to work<br />Sources: Stroebe & Diehl, 1994; Kerr & Brunn, 1983; Camacho & Paulus, 1995; Paulus & Dzindolet, 1993<br />
  35. 35. 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 />
  36. 36. Social Dilemmas<br />Cases where the best solution for an individual is counter and detrimental to the best overall solution to a group. <br />
  37. 37. Prisoner’s Dilemma<br />Iterated Prisoner’s Dilemma<br />
  38. 38. Tit for Tat<br />1. Always Cooperate on the First Go<br />2. Follow What Your Partner Did in the Last Round<br />
  39. 39. Ecosystems<br />Competitors = HAWKS<br />Cooperators = DOVES<br />
  40. 40. Implications in social dilemmas<br />1. Look long-term.<br />2. Cooperation works longer in the long-term<br />3. No need to be a doormat.<br />
