   Cruising along, listening to the radio, I hear a man talking about how fish think.  Apparently somewhere studying philosophizing fishes trips somebody's trigger.  They who study these things believe fish think better in groups.  Observing the behavior of a pair brought forth the discovery they will often create a hierarchy which sounds like other animal behavior.  One fish will decide the other is a better thinker and defer to him/her, becoming a follower.
    While not knowing a great deal about fish (and for the record, fishing) I do know a little about people.  In our institutions we create groups instead of waiting for them to form naturally.  In the church we look for people of similar age, gender, or marital status when we start a new class or group.  While all around us groups most often form around some interest or activity.   Teams form with an interest in the same game.  College students group by their Major coursework or advanced degrees.  Businesses look for people with skills compatible with the desired outcome.
