Article about how groups evolve and group dynamics

This is an interesting article about group dynamics and how individuals gather and behave in groups. The participants in the study had a tendency to gather in groups with ”similarly attractive people”, but the really interesting point was the phenomena ”social loafing” which occurred in the groups. “Social loafing” means that those people in the group who initially made a great effort to fit into the group were subsequently observed to be less active in the participation of carrying out the group tasks.
