Deindividuation “When an individual’s self-awareness is blocked or seriously reduced by environmental conditions, deindividuation can occur.” (McKenna & Bargh, p. 60) “Deindividuation describes a state of reduced self-awareness associated with immersion and anonymity within a group.” (The Blackwell Encyclopedia of Social Psychology)

  9. “Deindividuation, as through anonymity, does not by itself produce negative behavior. Rather, it decreases the influence of internal (i.e., self) standards of or guides to behavior, and increases the power of external, situational cues (Johnson and Downing, 1979).
