“At the heart of groupthink is the desire for harmony and conformity. It seeks to minimise conflict and reach a consensus decision without critical evaluation of alternative viewpoints, by actively suppressing dissenting viewpoints, and by isolating the group from outside influences. Driven by loyalty to the group, controversial issues or alternative solutions are avoided resulting in a loss of individual creativity, uniqueness and independent thinking.”
