Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) In this study, we investigated communication process between majority and minority in problem solving. We conducted a psychological experiment by constructing a situation where four participants of majority or minority engage in a rule discovery task with different perspectives. While solving the task, each of the participants confronts miscommunication about the other’s perspective and had to manage to overcome this situation. The main results indicated that the minority enhanced the understanding of the partner’s perspective than the majority did. Results of a comprehension test indicated that minority more actively reached the understanding of the partner’s perspective than the majority did. Additionally, the majority more frequently drew an irrational figure in the comprehension test. This phenomenon was interpreted as the egocentrism of the majority.
