The results in this study are astounding to see.  How natural are human’s biases?  This segment of 60 minutes (less than 15 minutes long) shows how researchers are evaluating the inherent bias of babies, even as young as 3 months old.  The babies show favoritism for good behavior but they also show favoritism for punishment of bad behavior.

Luckily modern society has learned to socialize people to be more helpful and considerate of others.
