At the start of a mini-series covering the comparison of thinking dogmatically versus thinking scientifically, Dr. Kashey gives us a good overview of the differences between the two, as well as how they can impact our emotions. Dogmatic thinking has a relatively arbitrary and rigid nature. On the other hand, scientific thinking is thorough, accurate, and allows for flexible outcomes. Factors such as the aspect of life being analyzed, and the emotional state of a person can determine if they are more dogmatically-minded or scientifically-minded. There is a place for both thinking styles, as Dr. Kashey explains further in the episode. An example of someone contemplating their health and fitness goals with dogmatic thinking would sound like “I HAVE to be sexy, strong, and in perfect shape.” They would set hard expectations for themselves. Whereas someone considering their health and fitness goals with a scientific mindset would understand that it’s not the end of the world if they miss their mark and they would continue to lead a purposeful life.
