How long have you belonged to the group, and what is your role in the group?

Please note that this is just a preview of a school assignment posted on our website by one of our clients. If you need assistance with this question too, please click on the Submit Your Instructions at the bottom of the page to get started.

An interpersonal undercurrent flows beneath the surface of most groups that pushes group members toward greater consensus, uniformity, homogeneity, or conformity. But other forces push members in divergent directions; they promote dissension, uniqueness, heterogeneity, and independence.
Choose a group you meet with regularly; take a moment and reflect on its influence on you. Do you change your behavior when you are in this group? Does the group influence you in some way, even when you are no longer in the group?
1. Describe the group briefly: its composition, structure, dynamics, and tasks. How long have you belonged to the group, and what is your role in the group?
2. Is the group an influential one for you, personally? To answer this question, briefly describe your basic personality in terms of these five qualities (see your Unit 1 discussion post for your scores in these areas):
introversion/extraversion (outgoing vs. reserved)
agreeable (friendly vs. aloof)
conscientious (responsible vs. uninvolved)
stability or neuroticism (assured vs. nervous) and
openness (open to ideas vs. conservative).
Do your actions in the group reflect your personal qualities, or do you act in ways that are inconsistent with your personality in this group?
Remember you can also take the Big Five Personality test at this website:
3. People differ in their tendency to conform in groups. Do you have any conformity increasing qualities? Are you shy? Do you prefer to change your behavior to match the demands of situations in which you find yourself? Do you avoid attracting too much attention to yourself when you are in social settings? Are you generally uncertain about the validity of your opinions and conclusions? Are you more introverted than extraverted?
4. Be sure to include a concluding paragraph that summarizes your reflections about this group, how your own personality influences your communication and interactions within the group, and your level of (and reasons for) conformity within the group.
Submit your assignment as an MS Word document in APA format. Your assignment should be a minimum of two to three pages in length, not including the APA formatted title and reference page. You should use the text as your reference. This is how it should appear on your reference page:
Forsyth, Donelson (2018) Group Dynamics. 7th ed. Cengage Learning.
In-text citations for the text will look like this: (Forsyth, 2018).

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
