How to use dissonance in a sentence?

  1. Jim Vlahos:

    The cognitive dissonance between the minister of education insisting schools are safe and then shutting playgrounds down boggles the mind, there's no rhyme or reason to the outdoor closures.

  2. Rohini Haar:

    I think in the U.S. the culture has been more of trusting health workers, there hasn’t been a longstanding conflict where there’s been a dissonance between health workers and the community.

  3. David Sharp:

    Hunters try to kill the deer with the largest antlers, fishermen tell stories of their biggest catch, and we sensationalize even the act of dieting by hosting reality TV shows such as The Biggest Loser, when we are bombarded with the appeal of getting things bigger or larger, it creates a bit of dissonance that the message for our most intimate choices such as our meals, our plates and our bodies runs opposite to our culture of plenty when considering long-term health and wellness.

  4. Adam Cathcart:

    It seems to indicate that he's either freestyling, or that his administration thinks that Kim Jong Un would actually be interested in meeting as a kind of carrot for negotiating, but there is an obvious dissonance with [Secretary of State Rex] Tillerson's categorical statements that the US will not 'negotiate its way back to the negotiating table.'.

  5. Parker Conrad:

    I think [ADP has] always had a bit of cognitive dissonance about Zenefits. On the one hand, we don’t do payroll—we’re a sales channel for them for payroll. On the other hand, although people think of ADP as a payroll company, they make a lot of money by taking that core payroll business and upselling clients on all of this other stuff, i think what happened for ADP is that at a certain point, their view of us flipped from uncertainty to a decision that they absolutely didn’t like us. Who knows? They might decide in six months to a year, ‘Oh my gosh, this is a mistake, we’d much rather partner with Zenefits—they have a lot of customers in the market, and we don’t want to block ourselves out of all of those customers.’.
