  1. Groupshift

    Groupshift is a phenomenon in which the initial positions of individual members of a group are exaggerated toward a more extreme position. When people are in groups, they make decisions about risk differently from when they are alone. The decision made tends to be even more risk-averse if the group members' opinions are risk-averse on average, and even more risk-seeking if the group members' opinions are risk seeking on average. In a group, people are likely to exhibit a slight preference towards riskier decisions, as the shared risk makes the individual risk less.

This shift towards more extreme positions occurs as group members interact and exchange ideas or perspectives, leading to a collective outcome that is significantly different from what each member may have decided individually. Groupshift can involve both positive and negative shifts in decision-making, depending on the underlying factors and dynamics within the group.
