Don Choi, assistant professor of psychology, published “A Comparison of Hindsight Bias in Groups and Individuals: The Moderating Role of Plausibility” in the Journal of Applied Social Psychology
He compared the magnitude of the hindsight bias in individuals and groups with the prediction that the plausibility of an outcome would affect the magnitude of the group–individual difference. Overall, groups were more prone to hindsight bias than were individuals, but the group–individual difference was present only when the given outcomes were relatively implausible. Moreover, this difference was not eliminated even when participants were asked to consider alternative outcomes.
