[SOLVED] Module 02 Discussion – The Power of Group Membership
Im trying to study for my Sociology course and I need some help to understand this question.
Describe a specific example of groupthink you have witnessed in your personal or professional life. Explain what factors contributed to this example of groupthink and how the outcome may have been different had groupthink not occurred. Connect your response to at least one other concept we’ve explored this week (such as in-groups and out-groups, roles, or social institutions).
