How to Tackle the Group Discussion in PPDT SSB Interview

The Group Discussion warrants and invites your arguments. The assessors would like to see as to how much mentally cool and composed are you.

The Group Discussion in PPDT is same as that of the ones in GTO series. We have observed every time, even in our day to day lives, that whenever we start a discussion something with someone, disagreement and conflicts hound to appear.   Disagreement causes dissatisfaction, disapproval and emotional disorder. Disagreement further means disapproval. To handle this, you need skill. How you react to a contradiction, as everyone is in a competitive mood is the plot of interest for the assessors. The System wants to see your reaction against contradiction. Whether are you able to be emotionally stable? Or are you able to maintain the degree of patient listening?


Differences are ought and bound to happen and one should have the emotional stability to resolve the emotional disturbances and emotional disorders.

What is required to be done?

The Group Discussion warrants and invites your arguments. The assessors would like to see as to how much mentally cool and composed are you. The moment you speak — your tone, your selection of words, your gesture come which further create your acceptability in the group. Please do not seek an opportunity to stop the discussion. Qualities will come when the discussion ¡s alive. If you are able to draw the discussion in your favour, taking the consideration and the interest of your fellow members, that too with acceptable gesture and emotional order, you would hold a high chance to sail ahead.

  • Managing the contradiction is more important rather than entering into contradiction. Being mentally composed means to remain cool, calm, balanced and lively to maintain the harmony.
  • Body language is an indication of your intention and mental language. Body language should not overpower your words. Without body language, you become neutral. The combination of speed and accuracy makes you sharp, intelligent and speedy.
  • The existence of Leadership is to manage the Crisis. The Crisis may be of any nature or at any place.
  • The role and responsibility of the basic intelligence is to decide and enhance your predictive value. Power is one of the psychological needs. Power is balanced by power. The structure of the society requires power and our very existence is to manage crisis.
