I can think of some blogs where this is true as well.

Thinking about getting a group together to brainstorm some new ideas?

Think again. From Live Science comes the news that people in groups don't come up with a variety of new ideas. Instead, they quickly focus on one idea -- and then spend the rest of the meeting convincing themselves that this was the right idea all along.

The solution? Do your brainstorming solo, then come together as a group to decide which idea is best.

Edward DeBonos book, the Six Thinking Styles or Hats might be of interest. He trys to help people think in one of those six ways, one way at a time. Groups can come together for good thinking, if they can practice good thinking to start with.
