Team cohesion refers to the degree to which team members exhibit interpersonal attraction, group pride and commitment to the task (Zaccaro et al., 1995). Members are committed to one another and are motivated to stay in a cohesive team. Team 2 members were fully committed and built the trust at the very beginning of the simulation. Being a cohesive group may affect the member behavior because of the internal pressure to conform (Beard, 2015). When the team was challenged by the weather in round 3, I had the ability to inform the team about the weather as the Marathoner with previous day’s data, after shared the information, I realized the majority of the team tended to stay and wait the weather report function to be fixed during the communication, I conformed the team’s decision to stay in the end.

The extrovert members prefer to share them proactively, and introvert members tend to share information better when others ask the right question. Although with the mutual agreement of sharing information, different personalities exhibit different approach to share individual information. Everest Simulation Decision-Making
