Methods for categorizing certain subjects, based on belief structures, are an important aspect of modern society. In a related paper, we present a method for combining belief, attributable to diverse knowledge sources, in order to obtain a measure of group membership. The scope of group identity is much greater than digital security and affects other societal endeavors. In this paper, we are going to propose methods for propagating belief through a complex network of belief assessments. The methods are known as compatibility relations.
