But look, the title of this thread is Cognitive Dissonance.
So we can reasonably do two things - we can talk about cognitive dissonance or we can demonstrate cognitive dissonance.
I am demonstrating cognitive dissonance.
And naturally this causes actual cognitive dissonance in your mind - and cognitive dissonance is mentally painful - so the temptation is to blame me.
This is quite natural but of course cheap.
It is the cognitive dissonance, not I, that is causing your mental pain.
And your pain is trying to tell you something.
It is telling you not to do something.
Pain, even mental pain, is a warning that something is wrong.
