Cognitive dissonance, coined by Leon Festinger in the s, describes the discomfort people feel when two cognitions, or a cognition and a behavior, contradict each other.

I smoke is dissonant. Cognitive Dissonance is described as the feeling of acute mental distress produced by holding two or more contradictory beliefs at the same time, or by believing one thing and doing another.

Festinger believed that people who had an internal inconsistency (cognitive dissonance) would make changes to justify their behavior by adding new information to the cognition which caused more cognitive dissonance or by trying to avoid social situations/contradictory information that would increase the level of cognitive dissonance.

In his book about cognitive dissonance theory, Festinger also determined that there are three relationships between our thoughts, or cognition. Festinger and Carlsmith () investigated if making people perform a dull task would create cognitive dissonance through forced compliance behavior.

Method In their laboratory experiment, they used 71 male students as participants to perform a series of dull tasks (such as turning pegs in a peg board for an hour).

Abstract. PURPOSE: Increasing evidence suggests that various health behaviours are amenable to change following the induction of cognitive dissonance.

This systematic review sought to evaluate the effectiveness and methodological quality of dissonance-based health behaviour interventions and to explore identified sources of heterogeneity in intervention effects.

The theory of cognitive dissonance is elegantly simple: it states that inconsistency between two cognitions creates an aversive state akin to hunger or thirst that gives rise to a motivation to reduce the inconsistency. Cognitive dissonance is defined as a state of mind where our belief does not match with our behaviour.

In terms of psychology, it’s a mental discomfort associated with psychological stress experienced by a person, where the person holds on to more than one contradictory ideas, attitudes, or beliefs.

Cognitive dissonance theory is applicable in all. According to theory, states of dissonance will leave us uncomfortable. Like thirst or hunger we will have an urge to bring a return to consonance.

There are many ways to resolve dissonance: 1) Change your cognitions (beliefs, attitudes, behavior), 2) Add new cognitions to explain or balance the conflict, 3) Alter the importance of the cognitions.
