Here is a little more information about common thinking errors/ways that people subconsiously use negative self talk to help clarify.

These won't all apply to you, but some may.


Think.... am I making any of these thinking errors?

1. Binocular Vision- Do I look at negative things in a way that makes them seem bigger than they really are? Do I look at good things in a way that makes them seem smaller than they really are?

2. Black and White thinking- do I think about things only in extreme or opposite ways (ie good or bad, all or non, black or white?)

3. Dark Glasses- Do I think only about the bad side of things?

4. Fortune Telling- Do I make predictions about what will happen in the future without enough information?

5. Making it personal- do I make things my responsibility that I don't need to? Do I blame myself for things I can't control?

6. Overgeneralizing- Do I make general conclusions based on only one event?

7. Labeling- Do I put simple, unfair and negative labels on people or things that are really more complicated than the lable?

8. Discounting the positive- Do I ignore positive things or thoughts by telling myself they don't really matter? Can I accept a compliment from another person without thinking it isn't really so? do I twist good situations into things that are bad?

9. Beating up on myself and others- Do I insist or demand that things should or must be done in a certain way.
