(1984). In other words, it seems as though the seven beliefs described by Abel et al. , the developmental or social-cognition literature relating to implicit theories and schemas respectively).

Ward also points out, however, that there is one important difference between the way in which lay theories are used and the way in which scientists typically COGNITIVE DISTORTIONS AND IMPLICIT THEORIES 21 use theories.

While ITs may still change over time in response to new evidence, this process is inhibited by the already held theories. To illustrate, in the case of child sexual abusers, when evidence is presented that contradicts the IT, the offender simply modifies his interpretation of the evidence – implicitly – so that it is consistent with his theory.
