  1. The textbook lists several symptoms of groupthink, along with various strategies for avoiding groupthink.

    For example, a group whose members censor themselves from contributing “contrary” or “different” opinions and/or whose members keep talking about outsiders as “weak” or the “enemy” may be suffering from groupthink.

    This may be avoided or corrected, for example, by asking someone to be the “devil's advocate” for a meeting, and by inviting in an outside observer to help gather different viewpoints.
