    These conflicts result when both alternatives are positive. The selection of one requires the rejection of another, which creates a need for a cognitive explanation of why one positive choice was not selected.

    Explanation:

    Approach-approach conflicts arises because of the presence of positive alternatives in which only one must be chosen.

    cognitive dissonance theory refers to a situation where by there is a conflict in attitudes and beliefs of individuals over the harmonization of their individual beliefs, behaviors and attitude over an event or group of events, it is natural for people to seek stability in their everyday approach towards certain issues and circumstances and the unwillingness to change that even if the alternative is as good as the former.
