Victims of GROUPTHINK: A Psychological Study of Foreign-Policy Decisions and Fiascoes |
GROUPTHINK: The psychological drive for consensus at any cost that suppresses dissent and appraisal of alternatives in cohesive decision-making groups.
The result of this small-group phenomenon often spell disaster, says author Irving L. Janis. GROUPTHINK paved the way for some of the major U.S. fiascoes of recent decades: the Korean War stalemate, the escalation of the Vietnam War, the failure to be prepared for the attack on Pearl Harbor, and the Bay of Pigs blunder.
