Cognitive Dissonance

Recommended Posts

Frank Lloyd Wright said, "Form follows function." A person's beliefs are similar to the frame of a building, The frame of a building follows it purpose. It's purpose is determined by the creator. The beliefs of a person are therefore determined by the creator. So if you provide info which contradicts a belief which the creator deems to be crucial to the purpose of that person, then you can talk till the cows come home. but the person will reject the info that you provided.

I see cognitive dissonance ("CD") as a healthy tool to consciously weigh conflicting data/information.

 

Ignoring CD, or the inability to use it, indicates a mental health deficiency.

Imposed belief sets are so overrated. 

 

I have had near zero cognitive dissonance, and even less anxiety since trashing the belief set indoctrinated into me in favor of a simple self determined mental bios based on kindness, empathy, facts, and rationality.  

 

The only dissonance I deal with is from the vast majority around me pushing their programmed belief on to me, or passively/actively against me.   This does suck.
