Group Dynamic Reflection Paper

I was very pleased with the group members that I was assigned to. I was a little worried knowing we had one male group member and six girls, but surprisingly we all had great group chemistry and had very little to no conflict. Everybody but one person in my group possessed different types of qualities such as leadership, creativity, charisma, and so forth. My group members and I were not under any pressure throughout the entire process when preparing for our presentation. We all worked efficiently, cohesively, and had great communication skills which allowed our group to perform in a very successful manner. Our initial meeting was ...view middle of the document...

We were a very diverse group and we all maintained a busy schedule, but we managed to meet at small coffee shops, the library, and the honors commons to make sure we had a strong and easy-flowing presentation.
Lexi and Chelsea were the creative ones out of the bunch. Lexi was an avid theater performer so her skills to combat stage fright came in handy as our presentation date got closer and closer. She had charisma and helped to communicate goals clearly when one of us would have a hard time understanding another person’s ideas. She had access to the Honors Commons and we would frequently have meetings there because it was a lot quieter than the library. Chelsea on the other hand, was the only art major in our group mixed with both Psychology and HHP majors. She was very down to earth and calm and despite the issues she was having with her partner for our presentation, she was always punctual and had a great sense of humor no matter what.
Allison and I are very much alike. We both decided to work together for our part of the project and we were surprised to find out how similar our ideas were for our part of the presentation. Our similar views can be best described as the reward theory of attraction. Allison made sure she posted on D2L when and where our next meetings would be so there would be no confusion whatsoever. Justin was definitely the comic in our group. He insisted on the activity which was later presented to our class towards the end of the presentation and did a wonderful job introducing and concluding our work. Justin really stood out best because he would try his hardest to show up at all of our meetings. He lost his mom in the process of completing our presentation and was absent for about a week, but he came back strong and was willing to do what he could to make our presentation successful.
Lastly, there is April. She was definitely the social loafer in our group. She did not care what ideas our group members would come up with and she was always the first one out the door when we concluded our meetings. I kind of figured she was having some personal problems and unfortunately it affected her schoolwork greatly. At times I felt like ostracizing her from the group because we worked more efficiently when she was not around. She was always in a bad mood and she gave us the impression that she did not want to be there or around us at all times. At one of our group meetings, I remember her saying she would prefer talking less for our presentation therefore; giving Chelsea more talk time which was not fair. When Dr. Hatz had mentioned that no none had done a skit, we thought that would be a great idea for our group and sure enough April made it loud and clear that she wanted no part in a skit.
Groupthink was very important and it helped maintain group cohesiveness and helped us reached a desired conclusion for our overall presentation. I believe we definitely had an advantage over most of the other groups because we had...
