Certain categories of us are more crucial to our identities than the kind of car we drive or the number of dots we can guess on a slide-gender, sexuality, religion, politics, ethnicity, and nationality, for starters. Without feeling attached to groups that give our lives meaning, identity, and purpose, we would suffer the intolerable sensation that we were loose marbles floating in a random universe. Therefore, we will do what it takes to preserve these attachments. Evolutionary psychologists argue that ethnocentrism-the belief that our own culture, nation, or religion is superior to all others-aids survival by strengthening our bonds to our primary social groups and thus increasing our willingness to work, fight, and occasionally die for them. When things are going well, people feel pretty tolerant of other cultures and religions-they even feel pretty tolerant of the other sex!-but when they are angry, anxious, or threatened, the default position is to activate their blind spots.

Hey, Sydney. I thought I saw your car out there." He glanced around. "Is, uh, Jill with you?"

That little guy, said Boris in the car on the way to Antwerp. You know the painter saw him-he wasn't painting that bird from his mind, you know? That's a real little guy, chained up on the wall, there. If I saw him mixed up with dozen other birds all the same kind, I could pick him out, no problem.
