Postformal Thought and Multiperson Groups
Adult life involves participation in groups of individuals. In a group, thinking and complex problem solving occur as the products of several minds, not one alone. The several minds may belong to a group called the family, or to the two persons in an intimate couple, or to a work group. In every case, being part of a thinking group larger than the self creates cognitive and procedural dangers and challenges for the group as well as for the individual. The process of change may be predictable, but specific outcomes are not.
