Re: Rage against the Algorithm
It is quite similar to chagrin, but is a transitional feeling. It isn't exactly regret. It's more similar to someone going on a diet, then later in the day craving a donut but instantly realizing they can't have it. A mild exertion of willpower, mixed with something like regret or perhaps disappointment.
What I'm trying to describe is something that I think everyone feels, but it's difficult to recognize. It's the feeling you get in that moment when you decide to inwardly challenge one of your long-held beliefs. It doesn't feel good, but a sense of mental discipline and adherence to cognitive integrity makes you grit your teeth and commit to analyzing it as objectively as you can.
