Behavioral Experiments And Perfectionism

It can be difficult to modify our thoughts or behaviors if we don’t have enough evidence to support new ways of thinking or acting. We might find new thoughts and behaviors that look good on paper and make sense intellectually, but we don’t believe in them because we don’t have experiences that back them up. Without this experiential knowledge the new thoughts don’t resonate, and we’re skeptical the new behaviors will work. Behavioral experiments give us the opportunity to test out hypotheses by setting up an experiment and seeing what happens, gathering new data that helps us change how we think and act.
