Response to chapter 5

This chapter helped me to understand the individual characteristics and dynamics of group mentalities. Social groups are what define us as people and should thus be observed as a part of life. Dyads and triads are interesting to observe because while one is a social group between two people, a triad can be just as effective if not more at socialization as one of the members can mediate and keep the other two in check. While learning about this I thought it might be a novel idea to apply such methodology to the world of formal organizations.
