This explained the concept of cognitive resonance and there’s another article about it on this: bloghttp://xenlogic.wordpress.com/2010/07/11/cognitive-resonance-and-self-fulfilling-prophecies/
which explains it innthe terms of self fulfilling prophesies. Maybe I am a bit stupid but I did not manage to find a connection between metaphors and prophecies (?)
Anyway, I’m merely an amateur in this field.. just started with MA psychology, after MS in zoology, in which I learned about basic animal behavior but to be honest I don’t have a clue (yet) as to what it all means….so I have a lot to learn.
Your article did help me understand it a bit..so..thanks!
