Cognitive Dissonance! Stop Lying to Yourself...

Published on 1/27/2019

It takes courage to face up to the lies we tell ourselves, but the work is worth it

Have you ever noticed that some people don't seem to be straight with themselves?

And by some people we could include you and me.

Sometimes people seem to be in denial. It's like one part of them knows the truth but another part of them is so invested in seeing things a different way that they don't allow themselves to see reality. Cognitive dissonance is worth knowing about because it explains so much human behavior. And not just other people's!

I want to tell you a quick but amazing story about the birth of the term 'cognitive dissonance'.

The flying saucer that never showed up

Imagine this: You've sold your home, quit your job, shunned your colleagues, and abandoned your friends and family.

Why? Because you are one of the select few who know the truth!

And what is this truth you know? The end of the world is nigh, and you know for a fact that you are one of the chosen ones who will be swept up from the 'great flood' at the stroke of midnight on 21 December 1957.

But midnight on 21 December comes around and there is no flood. No end of the world. No flying saucer to the rescue. No nothing (to use a double negative).

What do you do? Admit you were wrong? Acknowledge that you gave up position, money, friends... for nothing? Tell yourself and others you've been a gullible schmuck?

Not on your life.

But what do you do?

On being stood up by the aliens...
