Do most groups make decisions that have no lasting effect upon the relationships of individuals within the group?
What type of decisions and what type of groups? Peers discussing where they are going out to eat on a particular evening? Military units receiving orders?
You need to specify what you want in more exact terms. Please repost with more details.
I hope this helps a little. Thanks for asking.
In general? So does it depend on the group and what is going on within it?
Any statement that attempts to relate to all groups and all decisions would be overgeneralizing. Definitely yes.
