Understanding and Using Strategic Thinking

If I understand that the mind has three functions—thinking, feeling, and wanting—and that these functions are interdependent—by implication, I realize that any change in one of them is going to produce a parallel shift in the other two. It follows, then, that if I change my thinking, there should be some shift at the level of feeling and desire. For example, if I think you are insulting me, I will feel some resentment and a desire to respond to that insult.
