Realizing Connotations of Cognitive Disorder

Cognitive Disorder happens in the way we order the mind. If I go to Japan, I will get gold. There is no connotation here – just plain rigidity of thought. If I see a black cat in the morning, I will fail in the examination. This kind of thinking may have some valid basis but no consistency. It does not have to be true all the time. That is why we term it cognitive disorder. But we all generalize. In fact, all languages have an in built mechanism for creating common factors for groups of objects or classes.
When it rains I will have no umbrella. Yes, this will come true in your life and mine. For we know not when it will rain. Where people with cognitive disorder go wrong is in thinking in black-and-white. If I do not eat bananas, I will fall sick. If I do not carry the umbrella, it will rain. Try to understand the actual connotation of your thought pattern.
Avoiding preconceived notions helps one avoid negative feelings and connotations. This type of cognitive disorder may be an interactive disposition such as the thoughts that someone has against you or for you. Without investigating, it is not possible to say what the situation actually is. Or it may be a general attitude we develop. Just as we develop fear when we see a monster, the fear arises due to improper demarcation. We have not defined the object, hence the fear.
Next in cognitive disorder, you can avoid a lot of sorrow if you eliminate the person involved. Take the case of setting goals. “I” must definitely get up at 5 o’clock and milk the cows. Then we feel bad when we do not achieve this target. This emotional hangover can also be avoided if we put things into perspective. ‘It is always nice to get up at 5 o’clock in the morning.’ This connotation gives you the option of milking the cow, going for a walk, sitting on the balcony…the possibilities become limitless.
