Abstract

This study examines the impact of public screen and task types on consensus change and influence equality in a GSS environment. The researchers employed a controlled laboratory experiment with 44 five-person groups. The independent variables were public screen type and task type. Two kinds of public screens were studied: common and individual. Two task types were examined: intellectual and preference. The dependent variables were consensus change and influence equality. The findings were that a common public screen promotes consensus change with the preference but not the intellectual task. Moreover, individual public screens and the intellectual task encourage influence equality.
