Where dose my UB come from
Affinity deviation: Subjects tend to find people who are similar to them. This similarity may be biological, but it may also involve factors such as clothing and hairstyles (Kagetsu and Gunderman, 2017).
People tend to observe what they expect to see (Kagetsu and Gunderman, 2017).
Some prejudice seems to be part of human nature (Kagetsu and Gunderman, 2017).
People try to imitate the characteristics of others to integrate into groups (Kagetsu and Gunderman, 2017).
