In recent theoretic and empiric research, emotion management is emerging as a central determinant to outcomes of small group collaboration. This refers to affective outcomes such as satisfaction with an interaction, but also cognitive outcomes such as task performance. The latter is exemplified by findings that the so-called "collective intelligence factor", the IQ of a group, is more strongly related to abilities to recognize emotion in others, than cognitive abilities. As individuals differ in emotion management abilities, supportive systems could level the playing field.
In this thesis, a structured comparison of different forms of live group biofeedback is to be conducted in a simplified experimental setting.
