Grouping is a very common phenomenon seen in humans which runs down in a very complex way with groups within groups. Most of the wars in human history had been these giant groups of ideologies and faiths fighting against that of others, These have ended up with mass destruction and survival of the fittest. It still happens everywhere around with corporations fighting for markets internationally. In today's world, the individual identity has reduced and even from the time of our birth we belong to some groups which we don't even have the advantage to choose. The world has reduced itself to giant individuals that has collective intelligence of hundreds of people which make it almost impossible for an individual to survive. Understanding group behaviors is an very interesting field that concerns about loyalty towards the groups, decision making and other things that has not yet been completely explored.
