Personal review: Helicobacter pylori, NSAIDs and cognitive dissonance. (1/41)

Helicobacter pylori and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) each cause peptic ulcers but by different mechanisms. As a result, the effect of both of these risk factors together is not a synergistic enhancement of injury, ulceration or rates of complications. Indeed, there are circumstances under which patients infected with H. pylori are less prone to NSAID-induced ulcers than those who are not infected or who have undergone eradication treatment. This may be because of opposite effects on gastric mucosal prostaglandin synthesis or for other reasons. Reluctance to accept that there may be specific circumstances where H. pylori is beneficial may arise because of the psychological process of cognitive dissonance.  (+info)

Conflict of intentions due to callosal disconnection. (2/41)

OBJECTIVES: Three patients with callosal syndrome manifested a peculiar symptom in that they were unable to perform intended whole body actions because another intention emerged in competition with the original one. Attempts were made to clarify the symptomatology of this manifestation and its possible mechanism is discussed. METHODS: The three patients are described and previous reports on patients with callosal damage were reviewed. Four additional patients with similar symptoms were found and the clinical features common to all seven patients were examined. RESULTS: This symptom could not be attributed to unilateral movement disorders such as unilateral apraxia, intermanual conflict, or compulsive manipulation of tools. The manifestations included marked hesitation in initiating actions, interruption of actions, repetitive actions, and performance of unintended actions with difficulty in correcting them. All patients, except one, had a lesion in the posterior half of the body of the corpus callosum, and there was no significant involvement of the cerebral cortex. The symptom became manifest later than 4 weeks after callosal damage. It occurred during spontaneous actions, but not during well automated actions nor when following instructions. CONCLUSION: This symptom, tentatively named "conflict of intentions", can be regarded as a fragment of diagonistic dyspraxia originally described by Akelaitis, although it can occur independently of intermanual conflict. Normally, the right and left cerebral hemispheres may be complementarily modifying automated whole body actions in order to adapt behaviour to changes of the environment as well as to the intention. Partial callosal disconnection without significant cortical involvement would exaggerate the disparity between the role of each hemisphere through the reorganisation of neural systems after callosal damage. Such double, often contrary, behavioural tendencies may sometimes simultaneously enter the patient's awareness.  (+info)

Cannabis and psychosis. (3/41)

BACKGROUND: Cannabis use is commonly identified in people who present with psychosis. OBJECTIVE: This case study aims to provide a practical approach for general practitioners seeing patients with comorbid cannabis and mental health concerns. DISCUSSION: Cannabis related comorbidity is commonly seen in general practice. General practitioners can manage most presentations and help to reduce the likely occurrence of cannabis induced psychosis through the use of psychosocial support, brief interventions and harm minimisation.  (+info)

Money for consent--psychological consideration. (4/41)

CONTEXT: Regarding the increasing gap between demand and supply of donor organs the question is increasingly discussed, if families of organ donors should receive a financial incentive for consenting to organ donation. However, little attention has been paid to the psychological consequences of such incentives. OBJECTIVE: We discuss the question of financial incentives for families of presumed organ donors in the light of relevant psychological theories. DATA SOURCES AND STUDY SELECTION: Overview of the psychological literature. Only well established theories were included. CONCLUSIONS: We summarise, that financial benefits for consent to organ donoation could affect adversely the public opinion toward organ donation and the whole process of transplantation and thus could counterproductively influence the consent rates.  (+info)

What we regret most... and why. (5/41)

Which domains in life produce the greatest potential for regret, and what features of those life domains explain why? Using archival and laboratory evidence, the authors show that greater perceived opportunity within life domains evokes more intense regret. This pattern is consistent with previous publications demonstrating greater regret stemming from high rather than low opportunity or choice. A meta-analysis of 11 regret ranking studies revealed that the top six biggest regrets in life center on (in descending order) education, career, romance, parenting, the self, and leisure. Study Set 2 provided new laboratory evidence that directly linked the regret ranking to perceived opportunity. Study Set 3 ruled out an alternative interpretation involving framing effects. Overall, these findings show that people's biggest regrets are a reflection of where in life they see their largest opportunities; that is, where they see tangible prospects for change, growth, and renewal.  (+info)

Avoiding versus seeking: the relationship of information seeking to avoidance, blunting, coping, dissonance, and related concepts. (6/41)

QUESTION: How have theorists and empirical researchers treated the human tendency to avoid discomforting information? DATA SOURCES: A historical review (1890-2004) of theory literature in communication and information studies, coupled with searches of recent studies on uptake of genetic testing and on coping strategies of cancer patients, was performed. STUDY SELECTION: The authors' review of the recent literature included searches of the MEDLINE, PsychInfo, and CINAHL databases between 1992 and summer of 2004 and selective, manual searches of earlier literature. Search strategies included the following subject headings and key words: MeSH headings: Genetic Screening/psychology, Decision Making, Neoplasms/diagnosis/genetics/psychology; CINAHL headings: Genetic Screening, Genetic Counseling, Anxiety, Decision Making, Decision Making/Patient; additional key words: avoidance, worry, monitoring, blunting, cancer. The "Related Articles" function in MEDLINE was used to perform additional "citation pearl" searching. MAIN RESULTS: The assumption that individuals actively seek information underlies much of psychological theory and communication practice, as well as most models of the information-seeking process. However, much research has also noted that sometimes people avoid information, if paying attention to it will cause mental discomfort or dissonance. Cancer information in general and genetic screening for cancer in particular are discussed as examples to illustrate this pattern. CONCLUSION: That some patients avoid knowledge of imminent disease makes avoidance behavior an important area for social and psychological research, particularly with regard to genetic testing.  (+info)

Dissonance and healthy weight eating disorder prevention programs: a randomized efficacy trial. (7/41)

In this trial, adolescent girls with body dissatisfaction (N = 481, M age = 17 years) were randomized to an eating disorder prevention program involving dissonance-inducing activities that reduce thin-ideal internalization, a prevention program promoting healthy weight management, an expressive writing control condition, or an assessment-only control condition. Dissonance participants showed significantly greater reductions in eating disorder risk factors and bulimic symptoms than healthy weight, expressive writing, and assessment-only participants, and healthy weight participants showed significantly greater reductions in risk factors and symptoms than expressive writing and assessment-only participants from pretest to posttest. Although these effects faded over 6-month and 12-month follow-ups, dissonance and healthy weight participants showed significantly lower binge eating and obesity onset and reduced service utilization through 12-month follow-up, suggesting that both interventions have public health potential.  (+info)

Overcoming denial and increasing the intention to use condoms through the induction of hypocrisy. (8/41)

Feelings of hypocrisy were induced in college students to increase condom use. Hypocrisy was created by making subjects mindful of their past failure to use condoms and then having them persuade others about the importance of condoms for AIDS prevention. The induction of hypocrisy decreased denial and led to greater intent to improve condom use relative to the control conditions. The implications of these findings for AIDS prevention are discussed.  (+info)

From Wikipedia: Cognitive dissonance is an uncomfortable feeling caused by holding two contradictory ideas simultaneously. The ideas or cognitions in question may include attitudes and beliefs, and also the awareness of ones behavior. The theory of cognitive dissonance proposes that people have a motivational drive to reduce dissonance by changing their attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors,…

Cognitive dissonance refers to any situation involving conflicting beliefs, attitudes, or behaviors. According to the text, A First Look at Communication
This essay talks about seemingly opposite things: how cognitive dissonance perpetuates conflict, and how it can be used to de-escalate or even resolve conflict. Its importance has been particularly evident in the United States during the last Presidential election cycle, and now that Donald Trump has become president of the United States. One of the biggest factors in Trumps rise was social media, which Trump backers used extensively to paint a very negative image of Hillary Clinton, her behaviors, and her policies, while painting a strongly positive image of Donald Trump. Whenever news was publicized that contradicted those images, it was branded "fake news" and Trump dubbed the media as "the enemy of the American people." So the way Trump and his followers dealt with the many negative stories arising about Trump--for instance about his misogyny, about his racism, or about his inexperience -- which contradicted their image of Trump as a strong, effective leader, was to deny the truth of those ...
The first was a rebroadcast of an interview by Terry Gross (WHYY, Philadelphia) of Professor Ewe Reinhardt, a Princeton economist, who was a youngster in Germany during World War II and advocated for the Personal Mandate that became law with the enactment of the Affordable Care Act (aka, Obamacare). Reinhardt: "Cognitive Dissonance means that you hold two different theories that are in conflict with one another. For example, many Americans say the government doesnt have the right to require them to buy health insurance. But the same Americans will say if they get hit by a truck and lie bleeding in the street, society is obliged to send an ambulance and emergency room doctors are obliged to save their lives. How could both be true? If you believe society has a duty to save your life when you get hurt, you have a duty to chip into a fund that pays for that." The interview was particularly timely now that the US Senate is weighing repeal of the Personal Mandate as part of their tax overhaul ...
In this lesson, well talk about the psychological theory of cognitive dissonance, and a famous experiment done by psychologist Leon Festinger, who...
The key motivational mechanism that underlies the reluctance to change our minds, to admit mistakes, and to be unwilling to accept unwelcome scientific findings is cognitive dissonance-the discomfort we feel when two cognitions, or cognition and behavior, contradict each other. Leon Festinger, who developed this theory sixty years ago, showed that the key thing about dissonance is that, like extreme hunger, it is uncomfortable, and, like hunger, we are motivated to reduce it. For smokers, the dissonant cognitions are "Smoking is bad for me" versus "Im a heavy smoker." To reduce that dissonance, smokers either have to quit or justify smoking. Before we make a decision (about a car, a candidate, or anything else), we are as open-minded as we are likely to be; but after we make a decision, we have to reduce dissonance. To do this, we will emphasize everything good about the car we bought or the candidate we are supporting or the belief we accepted and notice only the flaws in the ...

The societal burden of eating disorders is clear, and though there is a compelling need for a public health approach to eating disorders prevention, public health professionals have yet to take up the challenge. The article lays out an argument
According to cognitive dissonance theory (Festinger, Schachter, & Riecken, 1964; Aronson, 1992; Tavris & Aronson, 2008), when people are presented with new evidence that conflicts with their previously held beliefs, this results in a form of cognitive tension called "dissonance". Importantly, the strength of this uncomfortable tension depends on the degree to which people have invested in their beliefs, for example by way of public commitment, or by the time and effort spent acting in accordance with these beliefs (Batson, 1975). If the psychological investment in a belief is high, people are more motivated to reduce dissonance by rationalizing away disconfirming data. In the refined version of dissonance theory, dissonance arises not so much because of two conflicting cognitions, but because adverse evidence conflicts with ones self-esteem as a competent and reasonable person[1]. This accords with our earlier observation that, when people explain away unwelcome evidence, they do so in a way ...

Jessies Legacy also chairs the North Shore Education Committee for the Prevention of Disordered Eating. While not a program as such, it is a collective of North Shore agencies working together to bring awareness to and a coordinated effort to prevent eating disorders in our community. Other members of this committee are School Districts 44 and 45, Vancouver Coastal Health, BC Dairy. The North Shore Education Committee on Eating Disorders began over 10 years ago as a response to a growing need for community stakeholders doing eating disorders prevention and counselling work with children and youth in North and West Vancouver, to meet together and brainstorm, learn collectively, and centralize messaging.. Today, the committee is run out of the Jessies Legacy Eating Disorders Prevention Program at Family Services of the North Shore and provides a real opportunity for learning and being creative within the field. The group is comprised of therapists, school counsellors and nurses, dietitians, and ...
According to the cognitive model, preserving consistency is a priority for human cognition (Festinger, 1957). People have a general tendency to restore coherence between their views, and between their views and the views of others, when this is compromised. If a person finds herself in a state of extreme cognitive dissonance, she needs to validate her prior beliefs and offset the cognitive dissonance emerging from those beliefs and newly acquired information. Mood-congruent delusions in depression play this key role. In particular, they may offer validation for ones own intensively experienced guilt, shame, hopelessness, and dismay. The claim that one is being spied upon in ones own home - for example - matches the belief that one is not trustworthy and should be monitored at all times. Undoubtedly such delusions come with psychological costs. The delusional content is weaved with unpleasant, sometimes terrifying events, such as being watched, followed, or threatened. But, by reducing ...
Religious uniform may represent the values that mental health professional holds important and prefer to hold in isolation from other thoughts giving rise to cognitive dissonance such as thoughts how bad it is for the patients and staff as well as the community (public interest). Cognitive dissonance plays a role in many value judgments, decisions and evaluations. Becoming aware of how conflicting beliefs impact the decision-making process is a great way to improve ability to make faster and more accurate choices. This ideal awareness is not something that is likely to happen in medical institutions dominated by men (General Medical Council in over 150 years never had a woman President or Chief Executive) or where women are chosen for their adherence to the same values and biases as men already there have. All major religions are patriarchal and dear to some medical men for that very reason. But not all medical men are the same. ...
One might quibble that Keech followed the second of Festingers possibilities: she acquired new information that transformed the disconfirming data into confirming data. In any case, Radin goes off in a different direction from Festinger and argues that another way to deal with cognitive dissonance is to "apply pressure to people who hold different ideas," i.e., ostracize them and label them as quacks, pseudoscientists, heretics, and the like. However, Festinger wasnt concerned with how people deal with those whose views conflict with the consensus viewpoint. That is a completely different issue. Festinger was concerned with how people deal with evidence that disconfirms a cherished belief. Radin considers ethnic cleansing and witch-hunts as examples of dealing with cognitive dissonance. Festinger would shake his head and wonder what such practices have to do with the psychological problem of discomfort caused by evidence that threatens to shake the foundations of ones beliefs. Radin claims ...
In the Cognitive Consequences of Forced Compliance (1959), the investigators Leon Festinger and Merrill Carlsmith asked students to spend an hour doing tedious tasks; e.g. turning pegs a quarter-turn, at fixed intervals. The tasks were designed to induce a strong, negative, mental attitude in the subjects. Once the subjects had done the tasks, the experimenters asked one group of subjects to speak with another subject (an actor) and persuade that impostor-subject that the tedious tasks were interesting and engaging. Subjects of one group were paid twenty dollars ($20); those in a second group were paid one dollar ($1) and those in the control group were not asked to speak with the imposter-subject.[13] At the conclusion of the study, when asked to rate the tedious tasks, the subjects of the second group (paid $1) rated the tasks more positively than did the subjects in the first group (paid $20) and than did the subjects of the control group; the responses of the paid subjects were evidence of ...

First, Planned Parenthood was founded by Margaret Sanger, a white, anti-Life activist who promoted negative eugenics (preventing the proliferation of populations believed to be "inferior" through elimination, birth control, sterilization, and state regulation of fertility, among other methods). She proposed extreme measures in an attempt to ensure that only certain people be allowed to live in her ideal world. This world excluded a host of individuals and groups she and her powerful ilk deemed "unfit," including - among others - the weak, the mentally or physically impaired, and the poor. Some of Sangers actions suggest that she may have considered the white population to be superior to blacks. For example, Sanger colluded with black leaders to promote birth control and sterilization among black populations disproportionately. Sangers radical eugenic views led to a lifetime of attempting to eliminate so-called undesirable human beings from civilization. "…those of us who believe that the ...
That The Vagina Monologues still manages to be controversial in this day and age. I acknowledge that I consciously realize that there are many people in this country who are uncomfortable with frank discussions of sex, not to mention everything else that gets discussed in the show. But to describe such a thing as somehow being inherently anti-Catholic? Especially in the context of a university, especially one as big as Notre Dame? Besides, if The Vagina Monologues is the negative of Catholicism, does that mean these people want us to associate Roman Catholicism with violence against women or something? Or just that the Church is anti-Vagina? Im not just being hyperbolic and demagogic, Im seriously curious here. Its just sort of surreal to me ...

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecules storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters. ...

Although contemporary usage of the term is relatively recent, the concept of denialism has been recognised for several decades. A chapter entitled "Denial of reality" in a 1957 book describing the phenomenon of cognitive dissonance notes how ". . . groups of scientists have been known to continue to believe in certain theories, supporting one another in this belief in spite of continual mounting evidence that these theories are incorrect." It highlights, in particular, the importance of selectivity, whereby "one aspect of the process of dissonance reduction [is] obtaining new cognition which will be consonant with existing cognition and avoiding new cognition which will be dissonant with existing cognition." The extent to which selectivity influences our views is now widely recognised, not least as a result of a best selling book containing many examples of what is termed "confirmation bias." One explanation is that confirmation bias is how we deal with evidence that challenges our strongly held ...

Objectives. The extensive consumption of alcohol can be defined as a major problem in Western countries. Primarily students are affected by negative health outcomes resulting from alcohol consumption. The most popular theory to explain Behavior is the Theory of Planned Behavior. Although, the Theory of Planned Behavior a valid method to predict human behavior regarding alcohol consumption, its predictive value is limited. In response to these limitations, there are other schools of thought which lead to an explanatory value to alcohol-related behavior. A crucial factor for the prediction of alcohol consumption is personality. Based on literature the personality traits Impulsivity and Sensation Seeking were chosen for this study. Although, most people know the negative consequences of drinking alcohol it is still a popular practice. The knowledge of the negative consequences and the and the contradictory desire to drink create a state of cognitive dissonance. To reduce this dissonance the ...

I have spent a long time declining to formulate my thoughts on the…let us call it "enormous cognitive dissonance"…that I see among genuine friends and "people I know and respect" over various political/politicized subjects the last year or two. I will mostly continue to decline, but, it appears to affect "both sides" (whatever that may mean), such that all capability for critical thought seems willfully jettisoned the moment any such subject arises.. Phrased more directly, Ive seen otherwise highly intelligent people spout some seriously dumb shit with deep conviction.. It perplexes me, but apparently my refusal to waste conscious thought on it has not precluded unconscious thought, such that today I began "spontaneously" recognizing this as a species of what I usually term, disparagingly, loyalty. "Blind loyalty" is perhaps more apt, but damn the adjectives. That comes back to the hypocrisies of tribalism and mob psychology and so on, but I am uninterested in the semantics and underlying ...
LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Female high school and medical students interested in pursuing careers in medicine and engineering will receive a boost to their professional aspirations by being part of a very special hands-on program conducted Sept. 27-28 at Orthopaedic Institute for Childrens downtown Los Angeles campus. The event is part of the nationally acclaimed Perry Initiative Outreach Program, which works to inspire young women to be leaders in these fields and to foster their understanding of and appreciation for the career that may lie ahead.. The Medical Student Outreach Program (MSOP) attracts women in their first or second year of medical school who are undecided about specialty choice or have expressed interest in exploring a career in orthopaedics. Approximately 45 participants at the Friday event will hear lectures from local women surgeons, network with industry leaders, and perform hands-on skills modules and mock orthopaedic surgeries.. The following day 40 young women from ...

The psychology of eating meat is a complex area of study illustrating the confluence of morality, emotions, cognition, and personality characteristics. Research into the psychological and cultural factors of meat eating suggests correlations with masculinity; support for hierarchical values; and reduced openness to experience. Because meat eating is widely practiced but is sometimes associated with ambivalence, it has been used as a case study in moral psychology to illustrate theories of cognitive dissonance and moral disengagement. Research into the consumer psychology of meat is relevant both to meat industry marketing and to advocates of reduced meat consumption. Meat is an important and highly preferred human food. Individuals attitudes towards meat are of interest to consumer psychologists, to the meat industry, and to advocates of reduced meat consumption. These attitudes can be affected by issues of price, health, taste, and ethics. The perception of meat in relation to these issues ...
As we prepared and ate eggs every way possible for the next several days, the last shred of the judgement Id held about what people put into their pie holes just fell away from me forever. Ive been a vegetarian since I was fourteen and highly lactose intolerant for the last fifteen years. Though I felt slightly uncomfortable with them, I still ate eggs to keep my dangerously low cholesterol from tanking. Even so, my diet was naturally still very limited, and eating just for fuel was a regular part of my life. Ive spent many meals eating salad and bread for dinner at the homes of loving family who I couldnt reasonably expect to follow what felt, even to me, like a daunting set of restrictions. I joked often about eating "hot wet noodles & vegetables" at weddings and steak houses when my social life required it.. Under it all, I resented everyone elses ability to embrace cognitive dissonance. I had friends who fought bravely to save the whales, save puppies from puppy mills, end animal ...
As I mentioned, HealthyMouth has been awarded the Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC) seal of acceptance. VOHC is an independent organization that reviews the evidence for products claimed to have value for prevention and treatment of dental disease in animals. The organization requires clinical trial evidence to support product claims, and they have pretty specific protocols to ensure these claims are adequately demonstrated. However, I still have some concerns about the trials HealthyMouth uses to support its product claims.. As I often point out, all of us have biases about the ideas and beliefs we hold. We naturally believe our hypotheses to be true, and this can lead us to see what we want or expect to see, to focus on confirming information and ignore or minimize contrary information (e.g. confirmation bias and cognitive dissonance). And non-ideological motives, such as financial incentives, can also influence our interpretation of what we see even if our intentions are quite honest. It ...
When he invited me to post about crime and punishment, Eugene suggested that I might want to finish up with a response to comments. So let me offer two general remarks, and some specific responses.. In general:. A. I cant read Eugenes mind, but I suspect that he invited me to guest-blog (despite our basic disagreements) for the same reason that I regularly follow this blog and other libertarian and conservative information channels. The basic lesson of Bayesian analysis is that you can learn only from information that disconfirms some part of your current belief set. But of course the natural tendency of the mind is to minimize cognitive dissonance by accepting confirming evidence and rejecting disconfirming evidence, and that tendency is emphasized when beliefs get to be badges of group membership.. This is a deeply unhealthy tendency, and it tends to defeat one of the basic evolutionary strategies of homo sapiens, which Karl Popper summed up as "letting our beliefs die in our place." ...
This is a copy of an article I wrote for Highbrow Paleo in 2011. I have not edited it.. Several years ago, I had an acquaintance who had previously been diagnosed with diabetes. He began a low carb diet, against the advice of his doctor, (this was in the dark 90′s), and over a period of time his symptoms abated, until one day his doctor announced that he no longer had diabetes (though in a bizarre, but perhaps common feat of cognitive dissonance, she could not help but advise him that he "really should eat more carbs"). Of course, my friend hadnt actually stopped being a diabetic. If he were to have started eating carbs again, as recommended, he would quickly have returned to his diabetic state. What it means to "be" a diabetic is to have the susceptibility to manifest diabetes under the right, or perhaps I should say wrong, circumstances.. We all have weaknesses, to a greater or lesser extent. We all have our own special ways in which our bodies break down in response to a poor environment. ...

The feedback provided to teachers by their supervisors, in preservice and in-service settings, is considered to be essential to teacher learning. Incorporating video records into these mentoring sessions has been shown to trigger the cognitive dissonance needed to help teachers explore the gaps between their intentions and their actual behaviors. However, while preservice teachers are increasingly asked to examine their teaching practice via video, their supervisors are not engaging in a parallel examination of their supervisory practice. Thus, university-based clinical supervisors who carry out critical conversations with teacher candidates do so without reflection about how they are performing in those conferences. At the same time, institutions of teacher education recognize the essential role supervisors play in the development of teacher candidate learning, yet are challenged as to how to provide professional development to supervisors. This paper describes an innovative response to this ...
This is a follow-up to "The Age of the Earth" post, although I suppose that one was really laying the groundwork for this one. This is where everything comes to a head (like the one shown here). Was there death before the Fall of Adam and Eve? It is a very delicate question, because there are very strong feelings on many sides of the issue, some of which may have tremendous gospel implications as well. So here we will tread lightly, and attempt to not make any dogmatic conclusions. Im not sure I have any besides. These are simply some first impressions on the subject. Because that is the case, we will ask more questions here than we attempt to answer in any substantial way.. This is a point of presumed doctrine in LDS belief that causes consternation for many members. Similar to the age of the Earth question, it causes cognitive dissonance for some, insofar that some even lose their faith in the Church, and even leave the Church. I perceive that this should not be. There are answers, even if ...
In a meeting early this summer, I shared the story of a young girl who recently died from a foodborne illness and of the advocacy that her family has engaged in since that time. A person holding an important position in a food organization responded with assurance: "Well, we take a risk each time we walk outside." This string of words has become a haunting refrain. The tearful words of the families with whom each of us at STOP Foodborne Illness have spoken resonate.. I wonder if the person who spoke communally understands why their position exists. Why do any of us have jobs in food safety? What happens in a food company when a senior employee subscribes to this philosophy? Maybe the belief is that it cant happen to them? Does this organization need to experience it first-hand to understand it? Will a consumer die as result of this philosophy? Will the company suffer incredible financial losses? Will the cognitive dissonance finally dissipate? Will the company survive?. A comment like this is a ...

In the earliest groups of humans on through today, mockery (or its friendlier cousin, teasing) triggers embarrassment. This triggering sets off a pattern of emotional responses, independent from rational thought or even conscious control. People do not like being mocked, and we can show this empirically with scans of peoples brains - it causes amygdala hijacking. People respond to mocking by shutting down logically: Literally, as in their responses stem from their amygdala, without asking the neocortex first. People may become very quiet or stammer - remember, fear conditioning & social interaction exist in the amygdala; language and conscious thought in the neocortex - or they may become defensive or angry if the logic is against them and cognitive dissonance takes over, as can happen in heated debates, e.g. religious ones. Mockery causes vasodilation of the face (blushing), causing our cheeks to appear red and feel warm because of the elevated volume of blood, which Darwin called "the most ...

Large amounts of funding are being allocated to the control of neglected tropical diseases. Strategies primarily rely on the mass distribution of drugs to adults and children living in endemic areas. The approach is presented as morally appropriate, technically effective, and context-free. Drawing on research undertaken in East Africa, we discuss ways in which normative ideas about global health programs are used to set aside social and biological evidence. In particular, there is a tendency to ignore local details, including information about actual drug take up. Fergusons anti-politics thesis is a useful starting point for analyzing why this happens, but is overly deterministic. Anti-politics discourse about healing the suffering poor may shape thinking and help explain cognitive dissonance. However, use of such discourse is also a means of strategically promoting vested interests and securing funding. Whatever the underlying motivations, rhetoric and realities are conflated, with ...

Im struggling to write about an excerpt from Johann Haris book "Lost Connections: Uncovering the Real Causes of Depression - and the Unexpected Solutions" that appeared in The Guardian yesterday. So much of what he writes dovetails with what we tried to communicate in "All The Rage", our film about the mindbody focused work of Dr John Sarno. One of the struggles in writing about it is that there are so many direct connections between our film and Baris piece that it is difficult to find the foundation to build on. You want to make every connection - where do you start?. In my work, I often start by illuminating the hidden frames that shape our expectations. For the most part, these frames are "hidden" because acknowledging them causes cognitive dissonance. For example, almost no one wants be called a Racist, so we are blind to examples of our own implicit bias. When confronted with the possibility that wading into the muck of our own emotions might help relieve physical pain, very few people ...

Questions could be asked of whether institutional contexts inadvertently invoke bullying, cognitive dissonance and tribal dominance behaviours. Like arguing on social media, people are unconsciously driven in this direction, psychologically and behaviourally shaped by their context.
A predilection, oft pursued, for high velocities on wheels, waves or wings causes grievous injuries and premature endings. Bright loud explosions, and rampant destruction, see men drawn like flies to a demolition ball in action, renting Die Hard lies and Arnies excesses may break cultural ties and cause racial distresses. Whatever else it was those two towers going down awesome and appalling, held our eyes and brains cognitive dissonance strained.
This really involves being playful with the content to get the right context. I feel it is most important to get the kids going and messing about with a good story or question before delving into any content. The story or question needs to create cognitive dissonance for the kids...it has to be something they can relate to but causes them to question their own understanding of it (and often it may be counter-intuitive). Once kids are engaged in the context, the content becomes meaningful to them and they are ready to learn it by applying it to this context in order to solve the story or question. I truly believe that the role of the teacher needs to be one that causes kids to be confused rather than one of knower of all knowledge! A cautionary note...this may also frustrate the kids so the teacher needs to check levels of frustration and assist or redirect as needed ...
I think that the issue here is cognitive dissonance on the part of pro-lifers. Those who take the view that early pregnancies are equal to 4 month fetuses, 8 month fetuses, and 8 month-olds also want to be supportive of mothers who are in the situation and know that imprisoning mothers would either 1) be an actual over-reaction or 2) would turn the general public away from the pro-life position. I think its actually a good sign, because that is an example of gray that is prevalent in the abortion debate (which I mentioned at the beginning on my last post, and which many people had something to say about it without actually reading the blog post), and yet which so many people (on both sides, but especially on the pro-life side) seem to deny. ...
Scientists arent necessarily the best people to look at this footage and understand what they are seeing. Why? Because many scientists, especially engineers tend to be left hemisphere people. Theyre linear thinkers, they are very very good at following a linear path of logic, but it terms of looking at a picture and understand what they are seeing, that is a right brain and that is actually a function that artists are better at than scientists. For that reason, one would expect that engineers, subject to cognitive dissonance that we are all subject to, would in examining this event be very likely to fall into a linear track of thought that would be essentially trying to show that it could have happened the way the government said it did. ...
This talk is an updated version of a talk I gave a few years ago and shared on the blog, in 2012 I think. Even if you watched the earlier version of the talk, if you find this question interesting-what is the case for restricting saturated fat (SFA) intake-its worth watching this version. I find this particular topic especially interesting because I think it highlights the challenge we all have, myself included, in setting aside bias when confronted with new information. (My friend Carols amazing book, Mistakes Were Made (But Not By Me) cannot be recommend highly enough for people who want to understand how cognitive dissonance wreaks havoc in even otherwise functioning societies.). And contrary to what some (perhaps many) of you might think, I dont believe this is a settled debate across the board. What do I mean by that (i.e., "across the board")? Certainly in this presentation I try to make the case that the continually falling recommendations for SFA-from 12% to 10% to 8% to 5% of total ...
When psychologists identified the phenomenon of cognitive dissonance - the ability to believe two contradictory things at the same time - they might have been describing the world of international climate change negotiations.

What gets access to consciousness? Again, unconscious processes lead the way. A big driver is our internal hierarchy of goals, one of the major unconscious functions that interacts with conciousness. Do we want a sandwich? A walk? A newspaper? Money? Survival? Life is complicated that way, as needs come up all the time at all levels. When a super-high level goal comes under fire, we are rivetted. Earthshaking experiences change conciousness itself, by re-arranging the unconscious contexts that underly it- it is not the earth that shakes, at least most of the time. Hallucinogens like LSD can have this kind of deep, long-lasting effect. On the other hand, if information comes along that violates a high-level model of reality particularly egregiously, we may also block it out rather than take on the problem of breaking down our painstakingly developed models of reality, (contexts, in Baarss teminology). Thus we fight cognitive dissonance to save them by rationalization, confirmation bias, denial, ...
Im a young, Christian, suburban, grad-school educated, white male, married with four children.

Also, for men who value truth over Utopian fantasy, cognitive dissonance is a bitch. Thank you to VD and others for articulating the truth.

Because Jeff and I are Christian, we point our son to the New Testament, where we learn that Jesus came, not as a wealthy and powerful king, but as a poor, suffering servant.

If we were Jewish, we would point him to the Torah, and teach him that life is full of suffering, but we respond by caring for others, following the law, and worshipping our Creator. If we were Buddhist, wed teach him about detachment from earthly cares and the path to enlightenment.

I understood organic to mean â€" in addition to being produced without synthetic chemicals â€" less processed, more local, easier on the animals. So I started looking more closely at some of the other organic items in the store. One of them in the frozen-food case caught my eye: an organic TV dinner (now there are three words I never expected to string together) from Cascadian Farm. When I looked at the ingredients list, I felt a small jolt of cognitive dissonance. It included such enigmas of modern food technology as natural chicken flavor, high-oleic safflower oil, guar and xanthan gum, soy lecithin, carrageenan and natural grill flavor, this last culinary breakthrough achieved with something called "tapioca maltodextrin." The label assured me that most of these additives are organic, which they no doubt are, and yet they seem about as jarring to my conception of organic food as, say, a cigarette boat on Walden Pond. But then, so too is the fact (mentioned nowhere on the label) that ...
LSP poses the biggest direct challenge, ironically, to those who say they do not want to use uranium or foreign carbon. Earths clean power sources such as hydro, wind, terrestrial solar, and biomass take large amounts of land area and are not cost-competitive with carbon or uranium at strategically relevant quantities. It is a comfortable ideology of victimization to complain that corporations and governments are spoiling the world. Where would it leave activists if the greatest perceived ills of corporate activity were gone?. The cognitive dissonance about collective sacrifice would be gone. We would not have to waste $0.02 worth of time to recycle $0.012 worth of aluminum any more (thats five seconds to someone earning $15/hr to save 14.9 grams per can at $800/ton).

Explains John Lamb Lash "... Tantric teachings also say that the most extreme moment of cognitive dissonance, when your mental fix conflicts alarmingly with what you feel and know reality to be, is also the moment when the fail-safe of the mind comes into play: the moment when self-correction turns itself on.

While a number of investigations have examined how gay Muslim men view homosexuality in relation to religious Western homophobia, this research constitutes the first account of the experiences of self-identified gay men living in an African, Muslim nation, where same-sex sex is both illegal and actively persecuted. We interviewed 28 gay men living in Tunisia in order to understand how they assimilate their sexual, religious and ethnic identities within a highly homophobic culture. Utilizing notions of homoerasure and homohysteria (McCormack and Eric Anderson ,b), and examining the intersection of identity conflict and new social movement theory, we highlight four strategies that participants use to negotiate the dissonance of living with conflicting identities in a context of religious homophobia: (1) privileging their Islamic identities and rejecting homosexuality as a legitimate sexual identity; (2) rejecting Islam and accepting homosexuality as a legitimate sexual identity; (3) interpreting ...

Due to the sole fact that the game is, in fact, a game and not reality, the gameplay often comes into conflict with the story the game is attempting to tell. This, when gameplay and story contradict one another, is ludonarrative dissonance.
The pervasively public nature of religion meant that Christian withdrawal from ritual events could not readily be hidden. Faith in God in the NT was by no means simply a particular devotion to this deity or a belief that one held as a private religious opinion. The uniqueness of the NT God was to be matched by an exclusivity in the devotional behavior of believers. Their devotion to God required believers to disassociate or distance themselves from core activities of their cultures, especially the worship of the gods on whom the welfare of city and empire was thought to depend. That is, faith in the NT God involved both a cognitive dissonance, and also an unavoidable social dissonance (which could, and as time went on, did involve sometimes severe dissonance with political authorities). As noted already, philosophers of the time toyed with various ideas about the gods with impunity (e.g., whether they were all one or whether some of them had been invented) in the cosy and safe settings ...
This last post has FINALLY hit on a key point overlooked by the hundreds of earlier posts in regard to the "hypocrisy" element of this discussion.. There is a hidden assumption in the hypocrisy argument, namely that college students base their espousal of redistributive taxation on popular (or once popular?) academic theories such as those of John Rawls, to the effect that ALL results in life are unearned and undeserved. Until the latest post, none of the posters has used a strong form of that argument; most have used a much weaker form in which success in GPA is held to be much more deserved than success in income.. One who professes to hold a strong Rawlsian position and has a higher than average GPA would clearly be hypocritical in wishing to redistribute income but not GPA (from which s/he derives prestige) because in the Rawlsian account s/he does not deserve greater prestige than other people. Only if (as Rawls himself wished were true, save for the minimum incentives necessary to have ...
The use of evidence is critical in guiding decision-making, but evidence from effect studies will be only one of a number of factors that will need to be taken into account in the decision-making processes. Equally important for policymakers will be the use of different types of evidence including implementation essentials and other decision-making principles such as social justice, political, ethical, equity issues, reflecting public attitudes and the level of resources available, rather than be based on health outcomes alone. This paper, aimed to support decision-makers, highlights the importance of commissioning high-quality evaluations, the key aspects to assess levels of evidence, the importance of supporting evidence-based implementation and what to look out for before, during and after implementation of mental health promotion and mental disorder prevention programmes.. ...

When did you guys first form? What made you want to create such brutal music? Since forming what fundamental elements of the band have changed? Do you still love to the same thing you were doing back then?. Well the official lineup has been rounded back in 2000, we created ID for the sole purpose of making extremely brutal Techcore, something that was far remote from what we did before and also something that would put us into a new musical scene and crowd, which was a bit more hardcore. To make music that possess certain skills of course but also some kind of sinister vibe, even if you will mosh and headbang, so basically, to put everything we love about extreme music and make it a cohesive whole. And were just getting closer and closer to what we want to pull out of this band, the new ideas are always better so yeah, of course we still enjoy very much what we do. There are some unpleasant aspects to the life we live in Ion, but they are mainly due to the "business" and "corporate" aspect ...
4) The Creative Process as a Source of Development and Growth: • Creativityis to join the sacred. Dissonance and harmony. We are beings born of harmony and equipped for pleasure, perception and consciousness development for evolution. • Intuition: this knowledge that discovers and de-covers. No issue, but to receive. Listen and be heard. • Harmony, goodness, pleasure and health. Overcoming Fear, fear, mistrust and resistance. • The afterlife and death versus the afterlife and creativity. The gift to create is within us. We are the condensation of the vibration of love and, therefore, are love. The dissonance resolved harmoniously. • Chaos as gestation, as the source of all genuine creation. Creative Chaos and pregnancy: full of possibilities floating in empty space-time and looking for a way to configure it. Wave and particle in tune with the channel. • The existential angst and its connection with the unspoken essence: the search for an expressive exhalation. Plants processed solar ...

Hypocrisy is one of the most overused words in the English language. Most people think it refers to any failure to act in accordance with ones expressed beliefs. But thats
Lets call this Conservative Chaos Theory. Without hypocrisy, the conservative mind would explode from the sheer force of its eternal contradictions. Forty years ago, conservatives awakened to the fact that their agenda was getting little traction in American public life. So they hatched a plan turn things around. Pooling their considerable financial resources, they would invest in the marketplace of ideas and fund books, professors, journalists - anything to promote, amplify, and disseminate their right-wing worldview. In short, they would buy the American mind.

I personally like a mix of familiar and unfamiliar tracks, if theres only music that I know well being played the "suprise-effect" disappears. Though if Im too lost a recognizable song usually takes me down to the ground a bit, so its all about balance! Classics often creates a burst of joy among the dancers, its awesome hearing your favorite pieces on a dancefloor (but its even better finding a new one right there ). As long as the transition is relatively smooth and doesnt take too long I dont complain, a bit of dissonance usually doesnt hurt (especially when it comes to forest/darkpsy where thats already a prominent element of the music). Other tricks (fx, etc) is secondary, its cool when people can pull it off but Ive never thought "man this set needs more DJ-tricks". About storytelling, I think it makes a difference. Though sometimes storytelling just means thinking about the relationship between the tracks and the order played, in terms of dynamics, mood and such. Which I guess ...

Powerfully led by music director Andris Nelsons, the ensemble leapt to the possibilities -- playing unitedly through harrowing dissonances, playful dances and strange juxtapositions.
This was the dissonance in Bruno Latours participation, both in his lecture and in conversation with Obrist and Tino Sehgal. In his disorganized lecture, he argued that there was "no transformation without institution," riffing on Whiteheads interpretation of substance theory to say that institution is "subsistence" -i.e., is a transformative body -rather than "substance," static. He concluded his segment with the idea that the art institution is "finally very weakened" because of those who are resistant to "critique," reminding us that transformation is not limited to "the margins," and that "science is one institution to cherish." It is unclear, though, if in "cherish[ing]" the institution, we are to accept it as apolitical and ideologically neutral.. Neither Latour nor Sehgal (nor Obrist, who moderated) acknowledge this in their conversation, and instead reinscribe it through their values. Latour stated, to paraphrase, that hierarchy "has to be worked out gradually," and defined his latest ...
