The film “The Breakfast Club” exemplifies group dynamic because at the start of the movie they don’t know each other and they think that the personalities are the same as the stereotype linked to their social group, but when they get to know each other the stereotypes go away and they realized that they are very similar. B y the end of the film everyone in the group figures out that they aren't that much different and they are all struggling with being misunderstood, so they realize that they were judging the other people in detention when they weren’t so different. In the movie The Breakfast Club John Bender is the criminal, Claire Standish is the princess, Andy Clarke is the athlete, Brian Johnson is the brain, Allison Reynolds is the basket case. Mr. Vernon gave everyone in the group a piece of paper and a pencil and told them to write a 1,000 word essay on who each one thinks they are. The group responded to the assignment by writing one essay explaining that it was stupid to write who each person thought they were because each person was a basket case, criminal, brain, athlete, and a princess.
In “The Breakfast club” the group exemplifies the group dynamic in society by showing that everyone is different and that people tend to stick to their own kind. They become an in group by bonding together in saturday detention, even though they're all completely different. Throughout the film, they all start to connect to each other and all their identities change from not being all about themselves. All of them start to click to each other and realize that they can be friends. The Breakfast club is a group of students in a saturday detention that are all different from each other.
If you’ve ever seen The Breakfast Club, you’ll know that at the beginning of the movie each teen identified as and viewed each other as a different archetype: a brain, an athlete, a basket-case, a princess, and a criminal. But by the end of the film, they were able to understand and admit that they all share many of the characteristics associated with each other’s groups, and that they had all simplified each other to a stereotype. This is how I feel about archetypes, too—archetypes are easy and can fit one’s surface, but they are not realistic. Humans are dynamic beings and no person can fit into one static stereotype.
There are many ways to manage conflict, Each conflict have there own outcome or consequences depending on the type of conflict that is used. In The breakfast club there were many conflict between the five main characters, such as Competing, Avoiding, Accommodating, Collaborating, Compromising. These conflict styles depends on how you solve the problem, and how you react with conflicting parties. Breakfast club film contained various conflict such as Competing(I win, you lose) according to Patterson James, G (2008) author of How to become a better negotiator “In a win lose negotiation the matter at stake involves a fixed value, and each party aims to get as much of that value as possible. Anything gained by one of party is achieved at the expense of the other
It's better to be an individual than act like everyone else. This was proven by Jerry Spinelli in the novel Stargirl. Stargirl was an individual who everyone thought was weird. She did whatever she felt like instead of acting like everyone else. She didn't care what other people think about her.
The Breakfast Club Often times high school students align themselves with one set group of values or expectations causing a third party to assume one’s personality, otherwise known as a stereotype. These stereotypes whether a jock, a trouble-making jerk, a rich popular kid, a genius, or the weird student that that is very misunderstood; cause people to not take the time to get to know one another. Many people would fit into one of these social categories, as do the main characters in The Breakfast Club, produced and directed by John Hughes in 1984. Hughes argues that everyone is different and no one, not even adults, have the right to determine a person’s worth based on their looks or social status. His argument is effective for its intended audience due his use of exaggerated stereotypes and relatable teenage topics.
The film opens up with our five main characters, Claire the prep, Allison the weirdo, Andrew the athlete, Brian the nerd, and John the rebel, going to school for a saturday detention. The movie starts off with the five characters disliking each other or at least thinking the others are inferior compared to themselves. At this point, the kids belong to an aggregate group due to the fact that, even though they are in the same place, they do not share a sense of identity. The film exemplifies the group dynamic in society by showing how people can transform from one kind of group to another. This can be seen in how the kids form their own in-group, the Breakfast Club, by sharing their own personal stories and deep intimate secrets with one another.
Entering a room and looking at a handful of people, a brain, a beauty, a jock, a rebel and a recluse, one wonders “What do all of these people have in common?” Detention. The answer is detention. The Breakfast Club written and directed by John Hugh’s stars Anthony Michael Hall as Brian Johnson: the brain, Molly Ringwald as Claire Standish: a beauty, Emilio Estevez as Andrew Clark: the jock, Judd Nelson as John Bender: the rebel, and Ally Sheedy as Allison Reynolds: the recluse. The Breakfast Club only won one award, the MTV Movie Silver Bucket of Excellence Award; however, it is considered a “textbook romantic comedy” among today’s culture.
High school can be a dreadful place for many, and for some it is an amazing experience. The hallways are filled with people of all sorts of backgrounds and numerous social circles. Every individual has his or her rank on the totem pole of popularity. John Hughes’ movie The Breakfast Club exemplifies these diversities and social circles as five teenagers form a new bond one Saturday in detention.
Research by Hoigaard et al. (2010) in Norway with 110 elite level, women handball players on 10 seperate teams supported previous research that role satisfaction (i.e., satisfaction with the athlete’s formal task-related role on the team) would mediate the relationship between perceived role ambiguity (i.e., lack of clear information about one’s position and the expectations) and the athletes’ willingness to engage in social loafing (the phenomenon when an individual athlete displays less motivation followed by exerting less effort towards a task when engaged and operating collectively in a group or team sport than when working alone (Eccles & Turner, 2014)). The plethora of research also supports a negative association between social loafing
Wearing diamonds, skipping school to go shopping, and eating sushi for lunch are as commonplace in my life as they are in the life of The Breakfast Club character Claire Standish. I often find myself wishing I was on a plane to France or carrying excessive makeup in my purse just like her. She presents herself as such a relatable character for me in particular, both on and beneath her fabulous surface. Essentially, Claire appears perfectly put together, but really she is experiencing emotional turmoil at the hands of her father and her alcoholic mother, who use her as a pawn to mess with each other. Claire embodies standard pretty rich girl perfection from the 80s.
