Now that’s interesting to me. I had never heard “Out-group bias” used before. It’s an interesting twist on the usual social psychology terms. Interesting. I don’t know about the connection between “social shaming” vs “outside threats” yet, but I’ll give kudos on the out-group bias concept.
“Out-group bias”. I’m still turning that over in my head a bit. So, essentially, would you say that social psychology as a whole has an out-group bias, placing a morality value upon acceptance of diversity over in-group cohesiveness, essentially “turning the tables” around on “What’s good” and “What’s not good” by making the in-group homogeny the virtue rather than the vice?
Fascinating. Now THIS is why I’ve been staying in this group: it is a flipped perspective from what I’m accustomed to… a uniquely different lens through which to view humanity from. Thank you.
