Wikipedia Articles

Some options for relevant Wikipedia articles that need work are:

 

Group Attribution Error - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Group_attribution_error

This is only a start article and can use more work.

 

In-Group Favoritism - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In-group_favoritism

This is only a start article, and the information it includes relies heavily on primary source references.

 

Production Blocking - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Production_blocking

The article just includes a short description and a few methods of avoidance. It needs additional citations and information.

 

Escalation of Commitment - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Escalation_of_commitment

The very short article focuses on the financial/investment definition and only has 2 sentences that refer to the definition as it relates to psychology/sociology.

Escalation of Commitment might be especially good since there is at least one recent review article to draw on:  

Sleesman, D. J., Conlon, D. E., McNamara, G., & Miles, J. E. (2012). Cleaning up the big muddy: A meta-analytic review of the determinants of escalation of commitment. Academy of management Journal, 55(3), 541-562.

I like the Group Attribution Error article. It should be sharing some characteristics with Fundamental Attribution Error (not sure if the quality of this article is good enough either) in (general?) psychology while having many characteristics that are unique to group.  It can also be linked to Bias. Still, at this stage I am not sure how much links and distinctions should there be between these three concepts if someone is choosing this article.

I'm interested in in-group favoritism. That could be really interesting to explore and I know there are a lot of studies about it. I'm actually surprised there's so little on Wikipedia.
