According to Jarvis, groupthink involves the following factors: 1) the illusion of vulnerability; 2) stereotyping outsiders; 3) bounded rationality and tethered assumptions; 4) belief in inherent morality; 5) self-censorship; 6) direct pressure on dissenters; and 7) mindguards.

These games are even played now at the highest levels of defense within the U.S. Department of Defense, with as many as four teams involved in highly competitive, intricate and strategic moves and counter-moves (Cares & Miskel, 2007). These games are multi-day affairs which force all the players to stay focused and to make plans for short-term objectives and long-term objectives: five moves and responses thus push the team on a faux multi-year trajectory that isn't directly controlled by either team and where it's actually…… [Read More]
