  1. Groups can arise from almost nothing
  2. Initiation rites improve group evaluations
  3. Groups breed conformity
  4. Learn the ropes or be ostracised
  5. You become your job
  6. Leaders gain trust by conforming
  7. Groups can improve performance…
  8. …but people will loaf
  9. [Rumours are] 80% accurate
  10. Groups breed competition
