Groups are powerful for all of us. They can foster the best in us and can bring out the worst. We are not the ‘same person’ in different groups, being steered by the culture of the group and our relationship with the task of the group into positions where different elements of our personality gain ascendancy. We all have a range of responses and defences that come into play in groups that may be considerably different or operate more strongly than in our more intimate and one-to-one relationships.
