I think Group Think LO29210

Replying to LO29198 --

Jan, You posting on 'group think' makes me feel uncomfortable. It depicts
something I have fought against for years. I suspect that in the last ten
years I have met more people who think independently, however this may be
due to the fact that I am now sixty and getting crustier.

It is very enticing to become part of a group, the sense of belonging is
very pleasant. However, I believe for survival it's essential to
recognise risks and handle crises proactively, if possible. Being a
comfortable (unthinking) part of the group subverts that.

In addition I would say, I trust our leaders to act as human beings,
however I'll make my own mind up about what affects me and mine.

Best Regards,
Alan Cotterell
