Ahmad Fadli KC : 10.2009 : Developing Your Own Moral Code (Uncategorized)
Why do some people feels guilty after having a premarital sex?
And why do some people don’t?
Those who experience a “slight discomfort” are experiencing a cognitive dissonance.
And what is that “cognitive dissonance” anyway?
Is KC trying to sound like some newly minted psychologist with this term?
If you look it up in Wikipedia, it goes like this…”Cognitive dissonance is an uncomfortable feeling caused by holding two contradictory ideas simultaneously”
The first idea is ‘It is wrong to have premarital sex’.
And the second idea is ‘Sex feels great, especially premarital sex’
Therefore a person who holds these two contradicting ideas will feel uncomfortable with his or herself most of the time.
So what is the solution ?
The solution is to develop one’s own moral code.
