cognitive dissonance.

Benoit and Guerrero

cognitive dissonance explained.
cognitive dissonance in action.

it’s interesting to see how people (publicly) deal with information as it becomes available. it’s almost like seeing the actual wheels inside people’s minds turn to formulate the next thought. cognitive dissonance is one of those things i new existed before i had a psycho.jargon term to latch onto.

personally? i’m puting off “dealing” w/how i feel about the whole thing until i get all the details. my intial thought, like some of those linked to above was “what in the fuckin fuck!” but this “wait for the details thing” is good shit. coping through analysis — it’s like skipping directly to stage 5.
