[size=150]GRE essay sample[/size]
Two minds are better than one. Group working in tandem always provide faster and better results than individuals working alone.
Working in a group might provide better solutions in some situations, but stating that a group working in tandem will
always provide better results is an overstatement.
The world has seen many great men and inventions. Thomas Alva Edisson who invented electricity, Sir Issac Newton who discovered gravity, Einstein who invented Theory of relativity and many others worked alone. Great minds do not need to work in a group to achieve great results.
As a matter of fact, great deeds in History, Science, Mathematics, Philosophy, Religion and almost every
field of study known to man kind, has seen this kind of massive development because of great individual effort. Ofcourse,one cannot disparage the efforts taken by group of people, say a team working in NASA, who have made significant contributions too.
Taking History for instance, Mathatma Gandhi is an example for a single mind acheiving great result. He worked alone to bring a divided Indian nation together and crusaded single handedly against Bristish Imperialism and made freedom possible for India. In Many historical revolutions, we find a single person/mind behind it; like Abraham Lincoln who fought to abolish slavery or Nelson Mandela who fought for his country’s Independence. These great leaders galvanized people and acheived great results single-handedly.
Working in a group can be beneficical in cases that requires it.In the case of building a house, a single person would take ages to buid it, whereas a group of men can complete it in a few months. For a group working together, providing faster and better results calls for harmony among the people in the group. The people in the group must be at ease with each other and there should not be any communication gap between them. In some situations. too many minds can be detrimental to the solution. As one might have heard, “too many cooks spoil the broth”.
Where neccessary, a group working in tandem can be beneficial. But the group will always need a single mind to steer the group in the right direction tp acheive results. This explains why we see hierarchical organization of people in almost all companies to make the most of working in groups and single person to guide the group.
Thus, group of men in tandem coupled with the resourcefulness of a single mind will acheive better and faster results.
