What else does Group Think mean?

  • It is a subtle influence that is used to deceive a self-regarding, insular group into accepting dubious assumptions. Mentally, it skips the step of considering risks and options. Assuming that others have considered them. (in Community Dictionary, added by Pancracio Guerrero)
  • A “cult” type of brainwashing that is used by government agencies and some tv news media. The group is directed to think in a particular way by control members who direct the group toward certain conclusions. This gives the illusion of a democratic consensus.
