What does it mean it says:
'An issue with independent groups design is participants who occupy the different groups are not the same. If a researcher finds a mean difference on the dependent variable, it may be more to do with the individual than the effects of the independent variable'

So you have two groups with 3 people in them each. So you have 6 individual people with individual quirks and characteristics. Any average difference on teh dependent variable may be to do with the differences between the individuals than due to the effects of the thing you are chaning (the independent variable)
