Abstract : The survival and performance of several types of groups (e.g., astronaut crews and military units) depend on the quality of the members' interaction .Group cohesiveness has been assumed to have a positive effect on group members' performance, interaction, and well-being. However, results of studies have been contradictory. The inconsistency can be partially attributed to absence of a conceptual mechanism linking group cohesiveness with social behavior.
