Quote of the Day
How to know you triggered your critic into cognitive dissonance:
- Changes topic
- Goes ad hominem
- Word salad
- Uses analogy in place of reason
- Insists it is “complicated” and can’t be summarized
- The “So….” tell (indicates a straw man coming)
As soon as you detect one of the seven tells for cognitive dissonance, excuse yourself from the conversation. You can’t deprogram someone via reason.
Does this sound familiar?
