Understand why it’s hard to understand

I’ve decided that I should include some informative content without my attempted comedic alterations or disguise. This category will be for that purpose only.

The first thing I could think to talk about something relevant to understanding my blog.  So I’m going to briefly explain the psychology that makes it difficult to entertain or accept new ideas.

Don’t panic! I’m not going to make this complicated with scientific or medical research studies, or use medical speech like influence and function by the amygdalae medially within the temporal lobes primary role in the processing of memory, decision-making, and emotional reactions….. lol

Only reference I’ll make is this one
Leon Festinger (1957) proposed cognitive dissonance theory, which states that a powerful motive to maintain cognitive consistency can give rise to irrational and sometimes maladaptive behavior.

I’m just trying to show that there is more to the way we think than we are consciously aware of.
