An example of self-defeating thinking, from the Wikipedia entry for Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy:

"Other significant people in my life, ABSOLUTELY MUST treat me kindly and fairly at all times, or else I can’t stand it, and they are bad, rotten, and evil persons who should be severely blamed, damned, and vindictively punished for their horrible treatment of me." This leads to feelings of anger, rage, fury, and vindictiveness and leads to actions like fights, feuds, wars, genocide, and ultimately, an atomic holocaust.

An atomic holocaust. So don't piss me off.

*If any.
