[ Parent Question — How Can People Evaluate Complex Questions Consistently? ]

What does social psychology tell us about getting consistent evaluations out of groups?

by Elizabeth 20d31st Aug 2019No comments


Suppose we have different groups repeatedly making the same kind of decision (ex: awards in a civil lawsuit). We would like their decisions to be consistent and predictable, and are even willing to trade some accuracy to do so.

Social psychology has a lot of predictions about things that will influence a groups answer, and thus could affect consistency (ex: a confident person speaking first will sway the group enormously) (assuming that survived the replication crisis, which I haven't checked). What other problems and solutions does post-crisis social psychology suggest when trying to get consistent evaluations out of groups?
