Generate an example of a time when someone experiences cognitive dissonance and then reduces it by changing their attitude. Your example can be based on your personal experience, or something you find in a film, book, or online. Make sure to:
- Describe the specific example of cognitive dissonance that you located,
- Clearly explain why you think the person experiences cognitive dissonance, and what type of cognitive dissonance they experience (insufficient justification? Post-decision dissonance? Effort justification?), and
- Clearly explain how the person reduces their cognitive dissonance.
