That was an interesting read!

I’ve only ever witnessed cognitive dissonance in terms of shifting a fundamental world view by providing empirical evidence disproving said world view. Instead of accepting the evidence and therefore shifting to a new world view, cognitive dissonance causes a strong bias, often completely neglecting and disregarding that evidence in favor of the (disproven) world view.

It’s interesting to see cognitive dissonance coming into play when we’re forced to a certain action and have to “justify” our dissonant behavior afterward.

Thank you for this insightful article!
