I am trying to find research on why three person teams might be better than using two person teams.
Background: in WW II the OSS sent out couriers of 3 man teams because they found that two person teams could be easily influenced (one person not wanting to follow through with a high risk tasking). If there were three people on the team, one person rarely could influence two people to change their minds.
If a team of three is preferable, in what context or environments is it most effective?
