How Cognitive Errors Leads to Neurosis


Although the structure and biological  functioning of the brain has been an important focus for scientists studying neurosis, there has also been considerable  interest in the role patterns of thinking play in people with neurosis.  Scientists have concluded that faulty beliefs about the risks of danger and harm play an important part in the fear, anxiety, and dread suffered by people with neurosis .You can also think of these faulty beliefs as inaccurate appraisals  or interpretations.

Imagine walking through a densely wooded forest with some friends.  It’s a beautiful day, and you’re enjoying the sights and sounds all around you.  You’re relaxed and calm as you enjoy the sound of birds and wildlife. Suddenly, a friend tells you he thinks he just saw a poisonous snake.

     An image of the snake slithering through the grass and attacking you triggers your body to prepare for danger.  You become edgy, fearful, and anxious.  Your heart pounds, your muscles tighten, and your pace speeds up as you think of the fastest way to leave the forest.  Slight movements of the bushes and the sounds of rustling tree leaves –phenomena that you ignored or found pleasing just moments ago-now cause you to feel fear.  You won’t relax until you exit the forest safely.

     When you finally leave the forest unharmed, you breathe a sigh of relief.  Although you never actually saw a snake, your brain didn’t care.  Your  anxious reaction was solely in response to our appraisal of the situation: your belief about the presence of a snake.  Whether there was actually a snake nearby didn’t matter.  Such is the power of a belief to trigger powerful bodily sensations and reactions.

     People with neurosis possess strong beliefs about the likelihood of a given situation being dangerous to themselves or others.  Often these beliefs can’t be supported or justified by the facts, and in fact, there’s evidence to contradict the belief.  This makes the belief a faulty one.  Most faulty beliefs arise from certain categories of cognitive errors
