Overall, I feel as though i am more confused about the topic than I was before I started reading.

After finally reading to the end of the article, i realize that I don't really understand what I had just read five minutes ago. I found the article to be very confusing and I didn't really understand the point to some of the things the author was saying. Especially with the experiment at the end of the article, I wasn't able to follow that at all. If the story about the college students and the UFO was a real thing, I don't understand how that makes sense really. On a good note, I now know a brief definition of what cognitive dissonance is: a disagreement or confusion about prior knowledge. Well at least I believe I know what it is.
