Mistakes Were Made

Newsweek has an interesting piece on cognitive dissonance. As much as many people have used cognitive dissonance theories to attack people or ideas they don't like, we should remember that it is a universal human trait. We all do it. What I find amusing is the people who pat themselves on the back for resolving cognitive dissonance as if this is some kind of achievement rather than a basic psychological trait common to all humans, one which can often have disastrous consequences.

I wish I had the time to track down some links at the moment, but I don't. Perhaps later.
