Such a â € œconversionâ € to a definite, always same alternative thought is what we call a â € œfocused distractionâ € in the jargon.

Ironic processes in action

Overview

Ironic processes occur not only in thoughts, but also in actions. If, for example, subjects are given a pendulum in their hands, and they tell them that they should not let it slip in any particular direction, then they do exactly that.
