This psychological test can tell you the thinking styles that cause you to act and feel the way you do. By learning what types of cognitive styles you have, you can determine what types of irrational thinking you are likely to engage in. Certain irrational thinking will create additional life problems or make it difficult to solve the problems you are confronted with.
This app is meant to be used with the Cognitive Diary app in which you record events that occur and determine if you engaged in any irrational thinking. If you did, it helps you to develop some statements to challenge the thinking.
Once you have developed the cognitive challenges you can review them daily to help you remember to challenge the irrational thinking.
By challenging your irrational thinking you can address problems more effectively. Change your mood and behavior by changing your thinking.
