Two models of research on group composition are critically examined. The first involves groups composed homogeneously or heterogeneously with regard to the personality profiles of the members. The relative productivity of these groups are studied in a series of problem-solving situations.

The problem of group composition is seen as the confluence of individual and social psychology. Author
