2SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGYAnswer 1The five factors that might affect the decision making of a group are the nature of thedecision made, experience, availability of time, confidentiality and comfort zone. In a groupdecision-making, the nature of the problem is a big factor that whether that will be consultedwith other or not. Here one might take the decision if the nature of the decision is not thatimportant where information needs to be sought from others. If there is previous, experienceof similar situations then information seeking and sharing might not place and one may usehis or her own mental models to predict what can happen and what needs to be done. Time isanother factor, which affect group decision making because if there is less time than takingadvices or suggestions gets restricted. An issue such as confidentiality inhibits the sharing ofinformation. Lastly, comfort zone is also affects group’s decision making, as here if theleader is comfortable handling an issue from their comfort zone then why will they involveothers. Therefore, the groups will be built keeping in mind those factors that actuallyinfluence the group decision-making to give the best output such as previous experiences, anescalation of commitment, different cognitive biases and individual differences. If anydecision making in the past has positive result then people are more likely to decide in asimilar way. Cognitive biases are mainly thinking patterns that are based on the observationsand generalizations. However, people are inclined more to those decision making towardswhich they feel more committed. Lastly, individual differences, which should be, keep inmind as people of lower socio economic background will make poor decisions because oftheir former decision-makings (Ford & Richardson, 2013).
