According to CEST, 20 SEYMOUR EPSTEIN effective adjustment requires an appropriate balance between the two systems, with the irrational excesses of the heart moderated by the reasoning of the mind, and the cold logic of the rational mind invigorated and humanized by the involvement of the heart. Expressed in terms of control, insufficient control of the experiential system by the rational system can be as maladaptive as excessive control. LACK OF CONTROL ASSOCIATED WITH THE BIASING INFLUENCE OF EXPERIENTIAL ON RATIONAL PROCESSING People like to think of themselves as rational.

This process continues until assimilation (if ever) is accomplished. The process is essentially adaptive, since it promotes assimilation and therefore the construction of a coherent model of the world that is consistent with experience. The main sources of maladjustment from the perspective of CEST are disharmony, including dissociation, within the experiential system, a failure in need fulfillment, and sensitivities and compulsions (to be discussed later), not a discrepancy between conscious and unconscious thinking.
