Those experiences in the group apparently puzzled Bion considerably, and he spent a number of years reconciling those experiences with his formal training with and psychoanalysis by Melanie Klein. When a group receives an external charge, meaning that the goal or purpose of the group is decided by people outside the group, there may be less uncertainty related to the task dimensions of the group. When group members discipline themselves and monitor their own behavior, groups need not invest in as many external mechanisms to promote conformity.

Last, the potential for productive and destructive conflict increases as multiple individuals come together to accomplish a task or achieve a purpose.
Aronson was brought in to examine the nature of this tension within schools, and to devise a strategy for reducing it so to improve the process of school integration, mandated under Brown v. Conformity pressure can also stem from external forces when the whole group stands to receive a reward or punishment based on its performance, which ties back to the small group characteristic of interdependence.
To make the most out of the adjourning stage, it is important that there be some guided and purposeful reflection. Human processes are frequently characterised by variability and flux.
