Abstract

We examined group decision accuracy as a function of communication medium (computer vs face-to-face) and task type (intellective vs judgmental). As predicted, FTF groups outperformed CM groups on a judgmental task, but not an intellective task. Members of FTF groups were also more likely to privately adopt their group's decision.
