The advice “Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups” may not be the most constructive or respectful way to approach group dynamics, so this is not serious guidance!
That said, it is important to recognize that intelligence is one, but not the only, factor that contributes to a group’s success or failure. Other factors such as communication, collaboration, motivation, and leadership also play important roles. Additionally, it is not helpful to label individuals as “stupid” as this can be disrespectful and dismissive of their unique perspectives and experiences.
Instead of focusing on individual intelligence, it may be more helpful to focus on fostering a culture of open communication, respect, and inclusivity in group settings. This can help ensure that all members of the group feel valued and are able to contribute their unique strengths and perspectives to achieve common goals.
Individual personality and intelligence can have a significant impact on group dynamics in large groups. Here are some examples:
Personality: Different personalities may have different communication styles, which can affect how effectively they are able to communicate and collaborate with others in the group. For example, some people may be more introverted and prefer to work independently, while others may be more extroverted and enjoy working in groups. Additionally, some people may be more assertive and dominant in group settings, while others may be more passive and deferential. These differences in personality can impact how group members interact and may influence how decisions are made and tasks are delegated within the group.
Intelligence: Higher levels of intelligence may contribute to better problem-solving and decision-making within the group. More intelligent individuals may be able to think critically, analyze complex information, and generate creative solutions to problems. However, it is important to note that intelligence is not the only factor that contributes to group success and that other factors such as motivation, leadership, and communication skills are also important.
In general, it is important to recognize that every individual brings their own unique personality and intelligence to a group setting and that a diversity of perspectives and skills can be beneficial for group performance. It is also important to create a supportive and inclusive environment that values and respects each member’s contributions, regardless of their personality or intelligence.

Yes it is important to include people who are within the group to get a good outcome of any situation.
However, this often doesn’t happen. Power struggles and manipulative behaviour are more common place than people think.
Thus it is hard to maintain all members of the group.
