Psychology | Out of Desperation

People will often behave out of character, because they are desperate. Desperation can drive us to commit crime; even murder. Desperation is feeling we can no longer tolerate our situation. We not only want to change how we feel; we need to change how we are feeling. We need to stop the pain. It might be physical pain, but often it’s psychological pain.


What is cognitive dissonance?



Cognitive dissonance is when we are in two minds about something. This can be conflicting beliefs, ideas, emotions or values. You know that you will have a hangover the next day, but you have a lot to drink anyway. You know smoking is bad for you, but you’re dying for a cigarette. Sex is normal and natural, but you feel embarrassed about it.
