In-group bias

Favouring people of your in-group over people outside.

Cause

Studies have shown that in-group favouritism arises as a result of the formation of cultural groups. Inter-group competition for scarce resources or psychological drive for distinct social identities leads to in-group favouring.

Consequences

  • A tendency of strong national zeal.
