There are several types of cognitive distortions, including:

1. All-or-Nothing Thinking: Seeing things as black or white, with no middle ground.
2. Overgeneralization: Making broad, sweeping conclusions based on single incidents.
3. Filtering: Focusing solely on the negative aspects while ignoring the positive.
4. Jumping to Conclusions: Assuming negative outcomes without evidence (e.g., mind reading or fortune-telling).
5. Catastrophizing: Expecting the worst possible outcome and exaggerating the consequences.
6. Personalization: Taking responsibility for events outside of your control.
7. Labeling: Applying negative labels to oneself or others based on specific actions.
8. Magnification and Minimization: Exaggerating the importance of negative events while downplaying the positive ones.
9. Should Statements: Imposing rigid expectations on oneself or others.
10. Emotional Reasoning: Believing that feelings reflect reality, regardless of evidence.
11. Discounting the Positive: Rejecting positive experiences by insisting they “don’t count.”

Recognizing these patterns can help individuals challenge and modify their thinking to improve mental well-being.
