Abstract: Group interaction can empower groups to outperform even their best members; unfortunately, such strong synergy is rare. The prototypical decision situation where synergy through interaction is possible is called a hidden profile (HP). The two main characteristics of these situations are that (1) each group member has new, unshared information that the other group members do not have, and (2) integrating this unshared information implies a different, better decision alternative than each member’s information alone. The hidden profile coding scheme is designed to code the initially shared and unshared information that is mentioned during the group discussion. The hidden profile coding scheme therefore aims to directly observe group decision processes that potentially lead to synergy.
