I ran across Is there a such thing as collective narcissism? by accident just now and my first thought was
hmm... yes sure, something at least analogous to it, and something like this surely has been written about somewhere.
but I can see that it might be a challenge to refactor this to be on-topic here. There is an answer that cites a work that includes the term "national vanity" but it seems that this is more along the lines of sociology or politics than psychology.
I then typed "group" into the tag search box and found no results, so I wonder if the questions in this site that are about psychology are limited to the psychology of individuals as opposed to group dynamics or crowd psychology.
I do see that there is a [tag: wisdom-of-crowds] and while it only has two questions, they are both very well received and answered, probably because they are well written and well researched.
- Appropriate metric(s) for quantifying the accuracy gain obtained from averaging dyads of estimates instead of adopting individual estimates?
- Performance of a group solving a cognitive task: How does it scale?
Narrow question: Could "Is there a such thing as collective narcissism?" be modified or asked again in a different form such that it could be answered?
Broader question: Are questions about group dynamics or crowd psychology in general a good or poor fit for this site? Provided they are well constructed and researched questions, are these within the scope of the site>
In the main meta from 9 years ago, answer(s) to Politics (science, sociology, theory of) questions should go where? sort-of point to Politics SE, and I think that folks in History SE sometimes like to write answers about why a leader or group or country ended up doing something in the past, and Philosophy SE has [96 questions tagged sociology, but in this meta question I'm only asking about the scope of this site.
