* A ''lot'' of [[CloudCuckooLander Dale Gribble's]] [[ConspiracyTheory conspiracy theories]] in ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' tend to run on these.

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'': Tywin Lannister suspects his son Tyrion is a bastard -not for any logical reason, he just despises Tyrion and desperately wishes he wasn't actually his son- but somehow this doesn't taint his memory of his late wife, who would have had to have cheated on him for this to be true.

* In ''ComicStrip/BeetleBailey'', Plato invokes this trope as a demonstration of how an officer's mind works by handing [[YesMan Lt. Fuzz]] a black paper and lying that the General said it was white, but... This prompts Fuzz to go on a rant about how you shouldn't question your superiors and how it all may be of vital importance somehow and culminating with his holding up the black paper and declaring firmly that it is white. The General happens to be passing and, without looking particularly surprised, just thinks he's nuts.

* In order to use [[FunctionalMagic sympathy]] in ''TheKingkillerChronicle'', one must be able to hold two opposite beliefs at once. It sounds simple at first, but it's also one of the reasons most Arcanists go mad.

* In ''TheHandmaidsTale'', the protagonist doesn't know what's happened to her husband, but states that she simultaneously believes that he was killed, that he was captured, and that he escaped.

* George Orwell's ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour'' is the TropeNamer. The party requires that all citizens believe everything that the party says, even when they know for a fact that it is not true. Ingrained in this concept is also the idea that YourMindMakesItReal. If everyone believes that something is true, then it ''is'' true. Thus, the party can literally dictate reality.

* "Paths of Glory" by FaithNoMore uses the line "I'm not afraid / But I'm afraid" to demonstrate a mentality frequent in WarIsHell scenarios: living in very obvious and unavoidable fear while at the same time attempting to adopt the {{Badass}} mentality that one isn't in order to cope with the twisted soldier fantasy/reality paradox.

* Satsuki Kiryuin from ''Anime/KillLaKill'' says that "Fear is freedom! Subjugation is liberation! Contradiction is truth! Those are the facts of this world, and you will all surrender to them, you pigs in human clothing!" This seems to be more of a ShoutOut to ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour'' than an actual philosophical statement, serving to inform the audience that the StudentCouncilPresident is a fascist dictator.
