Cognitive Intelligence in Groups

“Collective intelligence exists among groups of people who cooperate well; such intelligence extends beyond the cognitive abilities of the groups’ individual members.”

“Many social scientists have long contended that the ability of individuals to fare well on diverse cognitive tasks demonstrates the existence of a measurable level of intelligence in each person. In a study published Thursday, Sept. 30, in the advance online issue of the journal Science, the researchers applied a similar principle to small teams of people. They discovered that groups featuring the right kind of internal dynamics perform well on a wide range of assignments, a finding with potential applications for businesses and other organizations.”
