Othering 101: What Is “Othering”?

By “othering”, we mean any action by which an individual or group becomes mentally classified in somebody’s mind as “not one of us”. Rather than always remembering that every person is a complex bundle of emotions, ideas, motivations, reflexes, priorities, and many other subtle aspects, it’s sometimes easier to dismiss them as being in some way less human, and less worthy of respect and dignity, than we are.

This psychological tactic may have had its uses in our tribal past. Group cohesion was crucially important in the early days of human civilisation, and required strong demarcation between our allies and our enemies. To thrive, we needed to be part of a close-knit tribe who’d look out for us, in exchange for knowing that we’d help to look out for them in kind. People in your tribe, who live in the same community as you, are more likely to be closely related to you and consequently share your genes.

As a result, there’s a powerful evolutionary drive to identify in some way with a tribe of people who are “like you”, and to feel a stronger connection and allegiance to them than to anyone else. Today, this tribe might not be a local and insular community you grew up with, but can be, for instance, fellow supporters of a sports team or political party.

It’s probably not quite as simple as the just-so story we’re describing here. But there’s no doubt that grouping people into certain stereotyped classes, who we then treat differently based on the classes we’ve sorted them into, is a deeply rooted aspect of human nature. Intergroup bias is a well established psychological trait.

“If you’re not with us, you’re against us” is a simple heuristic people often use to decide whether someone is part of their tribe or not. If you are, then you can be expected to toe the line in certain ways if you don’t want to be ejected; if you’re not, you can be dismissed and hated as an “other”, the enemy.

A number of psychological experiments, such as the Asch Conformity Experiment, demonstrate the extent to which we feel compelled to make sure we fit in, as part of the tribe, in some situations.

Other research into, for instance, the Benjamin Franklin effect, shows that we have a startling tendency to come to hate people who we treat badly. If we’re experiencing guilt about our treatment of some person, or group, or class, and having trouble reconciling that guilt with our notion of ourselves as good people, our brains are extremely adept at resolving the situation by othering the people we feel that we’ve wronged. If we dehumanise someone, and distance our empathy with them, then we won’t have to feel bad about the shabby way we’ve treated them.

Political partisanship is a common area for othering to be found, and will likely be a prominent focus on this site. Any American readers will surely have noticed a tendency in many of their countryfolk to speak of “Democrats” or “Republicans” with derision, imagining this “other” to be a homogeneous group. The desire to associate with one party or the other is so strong that people will even support the other party’s policies, when they believe they’re identifying with their own group. To some extent, one’s political allegiances seem to have more to do with the label somebody has adopted than their actual opinions. (This has also been noted by Howard Stern, although he seemed to miss the point that this is something we’re all capable of, not just Obama supporters in Harlem.)

Furthermore, experiments such as the Brown Eyes, Blue Eyes exercise demonstrate just how readily we can be swept up in a group identity, learning to embrace only those of our tribe and reject the “others”, even when the difference is entirely arbitrary and meaningless.

The concept behind this site, then, is that a) humans have an undeniable and insidious inclination to engage in “othering” thought patterns for the purpose of self-preservation, and b) learning to avoid and counteract these thought patterns is integral to greatly reducing the world’s hatred and suffering. Our intent is to raise people’s consciousness about othering behaviour, to make them more alert to these thought patterns, and to encourage alternative ways of addressing the problems that we often seek to avoid by dehumanising any one group.

This site is still in the early stages of its development, and is not created or maintained by any experts in psychology, or anything else for that matter. We will be as science-based as possible, but if you want to read some more about the relevant psychological subjects by browsing around on Wikipedia for a while, this might be a good place to start.

I want to be accepted every single damn day there is and I want it to be normal. You know I don’t want people bothering to tell me that my having CP is acceptable to them.  By making a big deal of it it makes me different to those in the majority and Others me.

    I’m going to share this on my anti bullying page.

  46. After the recent slaughter at the Charlie Hebdo offices in Paris, we are reminded, yet again, about the deadly expressions into which the concept of “OTHER” can morph and manifest. The intense purposefulness of people who harbor such hate, which leads to actions that are incomprehensible to most of us, is likely never to be remediated once such individuals are “set in their ways.” It is not my purpose to analyze how or why they get “set in their ways,” but rather to suggest that educational systems, worldwide, could profoundly benefit humanity by prioritizing nurturance of awareness about the full range of commonalities that are core to all humans. (Yes, there are massive differences, but there are also extreme and profound degrees of common ground that are rarely, if ever, emphasized.) Lectures will never give ownership of such essential wisdom, but intelligent questions that stimulate children’s curiosity and deep connection to their lived experiences do. Questions that activate personal inner inquiry have the greatest impact when they are explored with groups of peers. When young children gain the habit, early in life, of thinking things through – especially universally relevant issues – they are much less likely to “OTHER” others… and this applies to all sides of every “OTHERING” interchange… because, in truth, non-acceptance, intolerance, and “OTHERING” is always a two-way street, in one form or another.

[…] A quick search into the definition of ‘othering’ displays a relatively negative term to describe people who are considered different, or don’t share what is considered ‘desirable’ characteristics (Tekin, C Beyza 2010). I found an interesting analysis of why this is an intrinsic part of human nature, which stems from the very roots of our species. ‘Othering’ is a concept that is considered to be a psychological tactic’ that had its uses in our tribal past, where group cohesion was crucial in the early days of human civilisation (Dervin, F 2013). To thrive, we needed to be a part of a close-knit tribe of people to look out for us, who share the same characteristics as you and are likely to have the same goals. It is because of this ‘base instinct’ that there is a powerful evolutionary drive to identify in some way with a tribe of people who are “like you”, and to feel a stronger connection and allegiance to them than to anyone else (Othering, 2011).

However, that’s not what The Lonely Tribalist is about. We want to further understand the other side. Politics insidiously incites division among people who would probably otherwise get along great. We want politics to be a constructive area in our lives. As conveniently incendiary soundbites fill my feed, this is something I have to remind myself: Trump supporters are people, too. It sounds silly and sophomoric, but if more people realized this when engaging in political discourse – more like “diss-course” – then there’d be a lot less in-fighting and harmful othering. […]

    From the article: “This psychological tactic may have had its uses in our tribal past. Group cohesion was crucially important in the early days of human civilisation, and required strong demarcation between our allies and our enemies.”

    This is a potentially dangerous position to take. Who is going to protect the nation of the U.S.A, (the thoughts here can be applied to any industrialized nation) if it turns out that “this psychological tactic” (i.e. applying the idea of someone is “not one of us,” as opposed to focusing on “…emotions, ideas, motivations, reflexes, priorities, and many other subtle aspects…) was a good one when some “unAmerican” is cutting your throat while his cohorts are raping your daughters, cutting your unborn from your wife’s belly, and stomping your son’s neck with their boots?

    Many of the “others” in the U.S. have expressed their hatred towards America and Americans while their cohorts have hung back, choosing to not say much that would attract attention. The Fort Hood shooter is a good example of the latter.

    The U.S. has its share of psychopathic killers already. There is no need to import others, or import those whose children develop into violent criminals of various sorts due to racial, cultural, religious, or other factors.

    Seeing that most of these imports come here to take advantage of the economic advantages of our republic, it is extremely hateful of them to come here and react against the very things that have created, or accompanied the creation of, the attractions that caught their attention in the first place.
