Cognitive Distortions

This page is about the encounters with internet posters showing they are conducting a cogniitive infiltration of the group I'm communicating with during my efforts to bring meaning to my free speech showing unreasonable interaction from groups of people on message boards or chats. The below list is something defined by psychologists involved with cognitive therapy. There are slightly differing lists but the meaning or mental action is the same.

Exercising this list in analysis on your own speaking as well as that of others can be an enlightening event showing a little about how the unconscious mind uses the conscious in it selection of words and perspective controlling expressed perceptions. Number 8 is extensively used with dynamic structures of the other 11 and false social groups to make what should be termed "quasi-reasoning".


1. All or nothing thinking: Things are placed in black or white categories. If things are less than perfect self is viewed as failure

2. Over generalization: Single event is viewed as continuous failure.

3. Mental filter: Details in life (positive or negative) are amplified in importance while opposite is rejected.

4. Minimizing: Perceiving one or opposite experiences (positive or negative) as absolute and maintaining singularity of belief to one or the other.

5. Mind reading: One absolutely concludes that others are reacting positively or negatively without investigating reality.

6. Fortune Telling: Based on previous 5 distortions, anticipation of negative or positive outcome of situations is established

7. Catastrophizing: Exaggerated importance of self's failures and others successes.

8. Emotional reasoning: One feels as though emotional state IS reality of situation. ie.

9. "Should" statements: Self imposed rules about behavior creating guilt at self inability to adhere and anger at others in their inability to conform to self's rules.

10. Labeling: Instead of understanding errors over generalization is applied.

11. Personalization: Thinking that the actions or statements of others are a reaction to you.

12. Entitlement: Believing that you deserve things you have not earned.
