  1. Good MorningQW: Why do you think people are more likely to do something when lots of other people are doing it too? What are some situations that are influenced by being with a group?

  2. Diffusion of Responsibility • AKA “Mob Mentality” • This term is used to describe unique behavioral characteristics which emerge when people are part of a group. • Diffusion means “spread out widely” • In this case, it’s the responsibility for actions/choices that is spread out among numerous people • When part of a group, people tend to do things they wouldn’t normally do when acting alone • They feel a loss of individualism and like they can’t be held accountable for their actions.

  3. This can lead to good things…

  4. But often leads to violence and destruction…

  5.
