While we live in a fast-paced, technology-driven information age, the way we connect with one another hasn’t changed much from how our ancestors did it by preferring to belong to groups. In fact, we’re hard-wired to arrange ourselves into tribes. This sense of belonging is what makes us human.
Seth Godin famously wrote, “A tribe is a group of people connected to one another, connected to a leader, and connected to an idea. For millions of years, human beings have been part of one tribe or another. A group needs only two things to be a tribe: a shared interest and a way to communicate.”
