Group Injury Definition

The cafeteria has become a battlefield! Dodging a frightening volley of peas while wiping mashed potatoes from my forehead, I am reminded that people behave very differently in groups than they do on their own. Group dynamics can produce behaviors that range from the emotionally childish to the violent. On the positive side, cooperative effort can result as well. Groups engaged in emotionally childish behavior can be dangerous. We often see this at sporting events. A common example of this is too many people pushing and shoving each other into a stadium railing. The railing collapses, and people go flying through the air to the field below. Serious injury is the result, which could have been avoided if a large group hadn’t crowded together.
