Shortly after Hurricane Katrina damaged the New Orleans and surrounding areas, news reports of groups of looters were announced. Oftentimes, when under the influence of a crowd, individuals will display aggressive or unlawful behavior that they would not otherwise participate in. This phenomenon is referred to as deindividuation. Research and discuss the following: Identify and describe a historical event in which the deindividuation phenomenon occurred. Explain the process of deindividuation (e.g., how it works, what changes happen within the individual to allow for unusual behavior). Discuss how deindividuation might also occur outside the presence of a crowd, such as in other settings in which a person feels anonymous.
