    Default What Tribe are You?

    We tend to form "tribes" of people who think like we do.
    .
    But is tribalism a bad thing?
    .
    For one, people within a tribe can learn from each other, protect each other, develop together. and saves us mental energy trying to figure out the best way to view the world.
    .
    But BETWEEN tribes there is often heated debates, no matter if one tribe is closer to "the truth" or if both tribes have completely made up facts.
    .
    Interestingly, we engage more in controversial posts (like the heading of this post) that point fingers. We don't engage in self-critical posts that force us to question ourselves.
    .
    This is how tribalism grows.
    .
    How to solve this problem? Empathy. Try to understand people before judging their "tribe"
    .
    Have they made a friend from that tribe? Has the diet helped them in some way? Do they have a business based on the tribe? What experiencea led them to this point?
    .
    Even if you are part of "team science", chances are you got lucky and started following someone who had "accurate facts". Is it possible that you too could've ended up in another tribe given the right circumstances?
    .
    You cannot fix the tribalism of the world, but you can try your best to be more objective.
    .
    Who are you? How are you behaving? What tribe are you unconsciously part of? How can you be more self-aware in situations?
    .
    This will improve your life and possibly rubb off on other people.
    .
    The goal of everyone isn't to find "the truth". Coaches and practitioners are more concerned about getting the best outcome, even if that outcome may be "placebo". And thats okay.
    .
    There are obviously situations when it creates problems. Trying to "correct" by pointing fingers will only worsen the tribalism.
    .
    Instead, point the finger to yourself and work on improving yourself!
    .
