This week, we discuss why having an enemy can be beneficial for any business. This has its roots in the psychological theory of Social Identity that was pioneered by Henri Tajfel. This British psychologist showed that humans are wired to see themselves as a member of a group, and could easily be influenced to identify with fellow group members and discriminate against members of rival groups. We'll show how businesses like Apple have exploited this concept on their path to global domination.
