Group risk taking was investigated as a function of the internal-external control level of group members. Using an experimental paradigm of Kogan and Wallach, it was predicted that groups composed of external Ss would manifest a greater risky shift and would reach group consensus in significantly less time than groups of internal Ss. The results demonstrated the risky-shift phenomenon for each group type and indicated that female groups reached consensus significantly faster than male groups. However, the predictions relating internal-external control to group risk taking were not supported.
