Questions:

  1. Is emotional reasoning a real thing?
  2. Are the proposed therapies efficacious for mitigating the negative aspects of emotional reasoning?
  3. Is it possible to change someone’s beliefs without using counter-emotional tactics (i.e. generate a counter emotion to change the person's belief)?
