Never understood tribalism either. It’s one of a few aspects of humanity that remains bizarre to me, especially that it’s so commonplace.
This means: I’m the outlier here, on the outskirts looking in in a lot of ways, studying and analyzing the patterns I see.
I could easily participate in a whole thread discussing and attempting to dissect tribalism with others as it’s such a weird thing to me.
I’ve tried joining groups. I go in, stay for a while, leave.
Other people have tried to pin me into groups. It’s rare they’re right but I’m willing to accept (to avoid drawn out arguments) certain labels stuck on me as “close enough”.
