How a Person's Mood May Affect Decision Making

Do you believe mood affects decision making? Do you feel that you make better decisions when you are in a good mood? Or do you feel you make better decisions when you are in a bad mood? Provide an example of a decision you made that you can tie to your mood at the given time.

In your opinion, how might groupthink benefit (or not) from hiring an outsider to periodically observe a team? An outsider is an employee who does not belong to a particular team. Would such a policy be seen by the team as indicating a lack of trust from management? What can a team do by way of self-regulation to detect and correct groupthink?
