Meta Cognitive Dissonance Reductionfleeting
meta cognitive dissonance reduction
I have the feeling that people that are aware of the cognitive dissonance tend to be more akin to change their behavior or attitude.
I suppose that.
- the cognitive dissonance induces some stress
- people don’t understand the stress because they don’t know about the cognitive dissonance
- they fallback in automatic reduction mechanism
Knowing about the cognitive dissonance might reduce the stress, because I believe we have better attitude towards what we can understand. Thus, the stress being lower, they have more power to act on themselves to reduce it.
