Abstract

The group decision making has many advantages versus the individual decision making, but it also has its disadvantages. These clearly include the so-called groupthink that forces the members of decision-making and discussion groups to prefer bad decisions, to maintain as much as possible the cohesion of the group. A technique that allows eliminating the groupthink is called the devil's advocate. He argues on purpose against the views and the decisions of the majority group. Higher forms of the technique are the multiple advocacy and the devil's inquisitor.
