Cognitive dissonance as a function of self-esteem and logical inconsistency.
TLDR
An experiment was conducted to test the importance of self-esteem in the arousal of cognitive dissonance, and the results were held to be consistent with Festinger and Carlsmith's version of dissonance arousal and inconsistent with the self- esteem analysis.
A Self-Standards Model of Cognitive Dissonance
Abstract This article presents a new model for understanding the role of the self in cognitive dissonance processes. We focus on the controversies among three major theories of how cognitions about
Taking a Closer Look: Reasserting the Role of the Self-Concept in Dissonance Theory
In an early revision of Festinger's theory of cognitive dissonance, Aronson argued that dissonance was aroused when an important element of the self-concept was violated. More recently, Cooper and
Whatever Happened to the Frustration-Aggression Hypothesis?
There is a fairly common pattern in the way social psychology’s major theoretical conceptions have changed in the past four decades. The Hegelian view of history envisions a regular sequence: thesis,
Replacement between Conformity and Counter-Conformity in Consumption Decisions
TLDR
Cognitive dissonance induced by the perceived extreme uniqueness of dress, participants with low self-esteem tended to say they would dress next time so as to conform with the way others were dressed, while those with high self- esteem indicated they would continue their counter-conformity in attire.
Self-image resilience and dissonance: the role of affirmational resources.
TLDR
The results were discussed in terms of their support for a resources theory of individual differences in resilience to self-image threats--an extension of self-affirmation theory, their implications for self-esteem functioning, and the continuing debate over self-enhancement versus self-consistency motivation.
Dissonance on the Road: Self-Esteem as a Moderator of Internal and External Self-Justification Strategies
Processes of self-justification were investigated in a field experiment among car drivers. High self-esteem was expected to reduce internal and external self-justification strategies. Dissonance was

In 1957, Leon Festinger's theory of cognitive dissonance burst on the scene and revitalized social psychology with its deft blend of cognition and motivation. For the next two decades, the theory

Changes in interpersonal perception as a means of reducing cognitive dissonance.
TLDR
The present experiment is both an extension of the above considerations into the area of person perception and an investigation of an alternative mode of dissonance reduction which has largely been ignored in experimental predictions from dissonance theory: the possibility of withdrawing or canceling out one's discrepant behavior instead of showing accommodating changes in attitude.
A new scale of social desirability independent of psychopathology.
TLDR
It seems clear that the items in the Edwards Social Desirability Scale would, of necessity, have extreme social desirability scale positions or, in other words, be statistically deviant.
Cognitive consequences of forced compliance.
TLDR
The theory behind this experiment is that the person who is forced to improvise a speech convinces himself, and some evidence is presented, which is not altogether conclusive, in support of this explanation.

TLDR
