Who got that Vocab?! : Cognitive Dissonance

This is the feeling of uncomfortable tension which comes from holding two conflicting thoughts in the mind at the same time.

Dissonance increases with:

-The importance of the subject to us.
-How strongly the dissonant thoughts conflict
-Our inability to rationalize and explain away the conflict
