Abstract: This article identifies the importance for humans to strengthen their sense of belonging and identity; the prioritization of shared identity to create a legacy beyond physical existence; and the causal chain of a “cognitive tribalism” mindset. Begley explicates how the presence of cognitive bias, including motivated reasoning, can lead to negative effects like isolating those who are different from us.
