Group or Individual Brainstorming?

While group brainstorming is often more effective at generating ideas than normal group problem solving, several studies have shown that individual brainstorming produces more – and often better – ideas than group brainstorming.

Individual brainstorming can produce better ideas because you're less likely to run into counter-productive behaviors.

However, the best brainstorming takes advantage of both individual and group work.
