Im sure that many on this forum will be aware of the thought-stopping techniques that are taught by JWs/WTS to suppress difficult thoughts and overcome cognitive dissonance in favour of reverting back to belief in WTS.
Often in conversation these will be clear verbal cues that can sound unnatural during the course of a conversation, as though an individual is temporarily reading a script to overcome a difficult point.
My question to you all is this:
Are there any methods or resources that people are aware of that can help to break through a thought stopping mechanism when it is noticeably in effect? A question perhaps, or technique that will encourage the individual to think the thought through in its entirety?
Any suggestions or retorts would be greatly appreciated.
