The Two Forms Of Thinking

Two biased forms of thinking that involve taking things too personally

Personalisation: believing that you're the cause of a negative event, despite having little or no evidence to support the belief.

Mind reading: believing someone is making a critical judgment about you, especially in an ambiguous situation where you've received no direct feedback.

  • Misleading thoughts about social situations can become habitual.
  • Social situations are always somewhat unclear, so it's natural to try to make sense of them.
