Mistakes Were Made Review

Very thorough summary of very important book on cognitive dissonance and how we deal with it that we’ve discussed here before, Mistakes Were Made (but not by me), over at The Situationist if you don’t want to read the whole book. Insights underlie rationalizations made by all of us for bad decisions and behavior, including offenders and corr sent practitioners. C’mon, you’ve got five minutes.

[Even shorter is this quick overview at PsyBlog of cog dissonance and one of the classic experiments that started our study of it (via Mind Hacks).]
