Social Psychology

Dynamics of group behavior and crowd behavior

We focus on the negative aspects of groups and crowds such as social loafing, shifts in the target of scapegoating by the media in the wake of an incident or a disaster, and etc. One’s true nature may be revealed in hard times. We consider it important to study the negative characteristics of humanity to understand the positive side.
