The Hazards of Forced Participation

If someone has had the opportunity (gaps in talking) to contribute to a group discussion, but hasn’t spoken up, then maybe:

  1. they haven’t got anything they want to contribute at that moment; or
  2. they don’t feel comfortable or confident expressing their views in the group situation; and
  3. they may well not appreciate any attempts, within that group situation at least, to cajole them into participating.
