Let’s start by defining the group mentality. The idea that the way that has worked in the past is good enough is the first trait. Secondly, the idea that what is thought by others is the best way to do things without question. Another pitfall of group mentality is that if others think it as crazy or unpopular that it must be a bad idea. These types of fears of the unknown and uncharted territory are common in people how to identify followers and or patrons of the common norm.
