That would produce an uncomfortable state of mind called cognitive dissonance which is a fancy way of saying an internal conflict.  It’s uncomfortable because humans aren’t designed for that.  We are meant to make plain choices with our gift of free will.  I for one would not suggest it to even an enemy.  Fight or flee.  Pick one don’t just stand there with that crazy look on your face!  lol

Dissonance is aroused when people are confronted with information that is inconsistent with their beliefs. If the dissonance is not reduced by changing one’s belief, the dissonance can result in restoring consonance through misperception, rejection or refutation of the information, seeking support from others who share the beliefs, and attempting to persuade others.  (Wikipedia)
