The goal of this study was to identify social loafing within this context and how it could be affected by the number of members in the group. We collected data from fourteen introductory psychology students. Groups were randomly assigned to either a dyad or a quad for a simple brainstorming task. Once the task was completed, the participants were asked to fill out a survey that measured perceived social loafing. Our results were insignificant, however they were trending in a way that suggests significant results could be observed with a larger sample size.
