We investigate advice taking of individuals, dyads, three-person and six-person groups. Our study shows that advice taking decreases with increasing group size. Unexpectedly, differences to optimal weighting (weighting relative to number of judgments) decreased with group size. Hence, advice discounting decreased with increasing group size.
