In what ways might a devil's advocate hinder the group process? What other strategies can help reduce groupthink?

  • PYSCHO -

    A devil's advocate takes the contrarian point of view, arguing against the "right" side. He may actually convince some people, although it may not be his intention.

    Another hindrance to the group process when one person intimidates some of the others with his apparently knowledgable opinions. Often these opinions are not based on knowledge, but on preconceived notions.
