Today, we welcome the always delightful Keith Whelpley, for a conversation about "Cognitive Dissonance". The term "Cognitive Dissonance" is used to describe the mental and/or emotional discomfort resulting from holding two conflicting beliefs, values, or attitudes. We explore how cognitive dissonance arises, how to recognize it, and how it influences our thinking, our feelings, our lives.
"The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function." - F. Scott Fitzgerald
