Figure 2 : The dependence of the time to consensus τ from simulations on group size n and variation in agreeability αi and persuasiveness βi.

From: Convergence to consensus in heterogeneous groups and the emergence of informal leadership

Figure 2

Individual values of αi and βi were chosen independently with a uniform probability from intervals of length Δa and Δb centered on 0.5. (a) Δb = 0.2. (b) Δb = 0.4. (c) Δb = 0.5. 5,000 simulations were run for each parameter combination with random formation of dyads; initial preferences were drawn from a uniform distribution on the interval (0, 1).
