-- Cognitive Dissidence? (http://archive.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?threadid=181805)

I was giving an example of it in action.

In the case of my example the person believes he should have object A, but is instead, going with object B, hence the psychological discomfort. To ease the discomfort the person begins enhancing object B and finding faults with object A. If he had chosen object A, the reverse would have happened.

At least that is the theory.

No. Cognitive dissonance is a psychological phenomenon which refers to the discomfort felt at a discrepancy between what you already know or believe, and new information or interpretation that does not fit with what you already know or believe.

I am his twin bother.
