How to use "Ingroup" in context?

When we perceive ingroup and outgroup members, we assign different levels of importance to them. We assign more importance to ingroup members because they are more similar to us. This is why we are more likely to help, empathize, or identify with them than outgroup members.

This phenomenon has been observed throughout history and can be seen in different groups such as ethnicity, nationality, and social class. For example, people from poorer backgrounds are more likely to identify with other poor people than people from affluent backgrounds.

This phenomenon is called the ingroup bias. The term was first used in the 1940s by psychologist Gordon Allport.
