Chris Shepherd Posted almost 3 years ago Group think vs individual thought or choice - ever have a personal conflict? Group think is a phenomena that I was subject to an excessive amount from University. I took classes in which the professor would read facts off a slide and very few of the concepts or the arguments put forth were debated, or even questioned by the majority of my peers. Upon learning what the professors personal opinion coincided with, most students would find an abundance of information available to them, mostly referred by the professors themselves. Though the first two years of study I exerted most of my efforts to stand out and contrast with an alternate perspective, I came to find that the simplest path to success was to go with the flow and join into the group think. Not to say that Universities manufacture zombies of group think, I was just a little set back to find the lack of informed alternate opinions amongst my classmates.
