Groupthink

Groupthink is a harmful pattern of human decision-making behaviour that tends to occur where a decision is made by generally well-intentioned group members who are keen to minimise conflict or dissent to maintain a perceived group consensus. As a result, decisions made may not reflect the real views of any (or all) members of the group, since pressure for ‘harmony’ has suppressed critical evaluation and rational discussion of the issue at stake.
