Cognitive dissonance

Cognitive dissonance is psychological conflict resulting from incongruous ideas and attitudes held simultaneously. The consequent lack of accord between beliefs and actions may be responsible for misunderstandings, separations, tensions and mistrust between peoples or nations, and can also be the source of mental anguish and perhaps mental illness within people themselves.
