Question Description

I will provide the book

Such a paper, by the nature of the detail and elaboration included, would be at least 3 pages (single spaced, 12-point font, 1 in margins, not including title page or reference page). At least 6 references total. No WIKI or encyclopedia. Please note: Different references means different sources, which may or may not be from different authors but will be from different articles, books, etc. Direct quoting a source is not what I am looking for, it is better to paraphrase and integrate into what you are saying, which shows you understood the source and how it relates to the point you are trying to make.

In what way does self-deception determine one’s experience in every aspect

of life?
Self-deception entails rationalizing away the most significant or relevant aspect of a
problem. It results in an individual being blinded to the true cause of a given problem thereby
making every solution they think about a bad solution that only makes matters worse. The four
ways in which self-deception determines an individual’s experience in every aspect of life
include, by enabling them to be able to inflate other people’s faults, by inflating their own
virtues, by enabling them to be able to inflate the value of every single thing that will justify selfbetrayal and lastly by enabling them to blame other people whenever things they are involved in
fail to be going according to plan (Arbinger Institute, 2008).
To begin with, self-deception determines a person’s experience in life by enabling them
to inflate other people's faults. This is usually as a result of the fact that it prevents one from
admitting that they are the ones who have a problem. For this reason, they want to justify a bad
solution that makes matters worse which is as a result of them being self-deceived simply by
blaming other people's execution of the proposed solution. This, in turn, results in one's
experience in every aspect of life being that which only finds other people to be failures in
whatever they are doing.
Secondly, self-deception determines a person’s experience in every single aspect of life
by enabling them to be able to inflate their own virtue. This is mostly attributed to the fact that
self-deception is as a result of the need to uphold the moral compass. For this reason, selfdeception results in an individual’s experience in every aspect of life being that of an individual
who has a good moral compass, when in reality they are only blinded to the true issue at hand
that they do not want to face simply because it may result in them knowing that they have flaws
that reflect badly on their good moral compass (Hui-Jing, 2013).
Thirdly, self-deception ends up determining a person’s experience in every aspect of life
simply by enabling them to be able to inflate the value of things that justify our self-betrayal
(Arbinger Institute, 2008). This is as a result of the fact that when one is self-deceived, they end
up striving to ensure that their next cause of action is right at all costs. For this reason, they lean
