In-group bias is another well-researched source of bias, that probably can be traced back all the way to primate groups. This is important not because it is more primitive, on the contrary: it is much more subconscious and entrenched than other, more cultural (you could say "human") biases. We want our group / tribe / company to thrive not because we will be better off, but because we are the best.
