Example of Groupthink

Groupthink is a synthetic word referring to the mental products of groups. It's usually a negative reference, loathed by freethinkers, implying lack of individual thought, or a process of consensus where compromises are used to produce a diluted, half baked, result. It's related to the common image of committee thinking, where a camel is described as a horse designed by a committee. Groupthink however routinely surfaces in some forms of management thinking, usually consensual, but sometimes related to the 'social IQ' or 'Emotional IQ' concept, involving what is sometimes considered facile thinking.
