For web forms like this, I'd say this harms usability because... well,
it's kind of selfish, really. When I fill out a form with contact
information (oh hello, FAS), I don't really feel like reading, I just
want to get my information in the system in a hurry. I'm assuming it's
not just me.

I love the idea for the group introduction bit, but I would strongly
recommend not applying this concept to FAS. It's more confusion than
what it's worth.
