    After three months of contact, the group reached a certain degree of homogeneity and started to assimilate some standards and rules of life in a group. However, their degree of tolerance to any kind of frustration, even justifiable, is very low, with a great tendency to resolve conflicts by aggressiveness. It seems that a whole culture is rooted in their subconscious, which develops this kind of behavior and encourages them to adopt it.
