An interesting study appearing in the April issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology looks at the effects of group size on problem solving. Researchers compared the problem-solving performance of small groups to that of individuals working alone. The results of the study indicate that groups of three solve problems better than even the best individuals working alone.

What are the implications of these results? The findings may be useful in academics, where problem solving groups might serve as an effective learning tool. Groups and teams in science, health care, and business may also find these techniques useful as well.
