Default Fighting fear - and losing

There’s a statement at about minute 8 of this podcast I felt deserved consideration here:

Quote:
The primary emotion is anxiety…this is an anxiety that is partly legitimate and genuine, but it’s an anxiety that spread in a strange way where it didn’t really belong.
What the speaker is discussing are the threats that were inherent to the cold war, but, being who I am, my mind turned to the application of this to the phenomenal ignorance of modern neuroscience displayed by the newest graduates of professional programs.

Is this a result of the underlying anxiety of their instructors?

Barrett,

I'm not sure who said this " the need to be normal is the predominant anxiety disorder of our time", but it seems to fit here. After all we (PTs) are the policemen of health rules are we not? It makes sense the profession would struggle to shift in light of conflicting data.

Gil,

It was Thomas Moore in Original self.

I think this hits it precisely.

One term that I like that I think causes this anxiety is cognitive dissonance.

Sure, but this condition was defined and explained in the 50s in the scientific literature. See here.

It's 2012 for cryin' out loud.

That thread about dissonance I linked in the last post?

Today, it's my favorite.

Have a look.
