9780060166854: The 10 Dumbest Mistakes Smart People Make and How to Avoid Them: Simple and Sure Techniques for Gaining Greater Control of Your Life

This guide illustrates how the tools of cognitive therapy - techniques that foster greater reasoning ability - can be used to break away from the ten most common thought patterns that lead to misunderstanding and trouble. These mistakes include personalizing, assuming the worst, perfectionism, believing other can read our minds and comparison drawing. Based on years of therapeutic observation, Freeman and DeWolf offer case examples of how it is often applied, and then supply concrete methods for correcting the mistakes. The book includes a mistake-makers' quiz that enables readers to zero in on their most troublesome behaviour patterns. It recommends realistic ways for readers to obtain greater control of their lives, work and personal relationships. By the authors of "Woulda, Coulda and Shoulda".
