Краткое описание:
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Making a mountain out of a molehill or over-reaction is to make too much of a minor issue. In cognitive psychology, this form of cognitive distortion is called magnification. The term "molehill" is used in the idiom because moles are known for tunneling. A molehill is the small mound produced by a mole burrowing in the soil. Mountains are many orders of magnitude larger. The idiom "making a mountain out of a molehill" is a metaphor for the commonplace behaviour of responding disproportionately to something - usually an adverse circumstance such as forgetting to turn an appliance off. This alliterative phrase commonly used to described this has a long history, being first known in English in the first tome or volume of the Paraphrase of Erasmus vpon the newe testamente which was edited and translated by Nicholas Udall. In this, Udall wrote, "The Sophistes of Grece coulde through their copiousness make an Elephant of a flye, and a mountaine of a mollehill." The comparison of the elephant with a fly is taken from Lucian but the mountain and molehill seem to have been created by Udall.
