Mistakes Were Made (but Not by me): Why We Justify Foolish Beliefs, Bad Decisions, and Hurtful Acts
by Carol Tavris Author and Elliot Aronson Author
Do you ever wonder why you're justifying something foolish you did? Why is it so hard to admit that you've made a mistake? In Mistakes Were Made (but not by me), social psychologists Carol Travis and Elliot Aronson explain the reasoning behind our stubborn beliefs and the cognitive dissonance that we often fall into. This book will teach you why we do this and how we can learn to move past self-justification and take responsibility for our actions.
