In their experiment 25 physicians were recruited and asked to solve 2 hypothetical medical cases in groups of three. Firstly each participant watched a video on their own in which they saw a patient talking about their symptoms with their doctor (parts played by actors). Participants were, however, shown slightly different videos, thereby imparting some information to all three members of the diagnostic team, and some information only to individuals.<br /><br />The experiment was set up so that it was only possible to make an accurate diagnosis if the doctors shared the information about the patient that was known only to themselves. What the experimenters found, though, was the classic dynamic where participants spent more time discussing shared rather than unshared information. Because groups which didn't pool previously unshared information had less to go on, consequently they made less accurate diagnoses.

"He taught me 'the standard pace is for chumps' - that the system is designed so anyone can keep up. If you're more driven than 'just anyone' - you can do so much more than anyone expects. And this applies to ALL of life - not just school.

Then, as he suggested, I bought the course materials for other required classes and taught myself, doing the homework on my own time, then went to the department head and took the final exam, getting full credit for the course."
