011: Negative and Positive Distortions (Part 2)

In this podcast, David and Fabrice discuss the three common distortions: Jumping to Conclusions (including Mind-Reading and Fortune-Telling), Magnification and Minimization (also called the Binocular Trick), and Emotional Reasoning. David explains how the negative versions of these distortions trigger feelings of depression, inferiority, anger, anxiety, shyness, and hopelessness, and how the positive versions can lead to bad habits, such as procrastination and binge-eating, and also helped to trigger the Iraq war.
