Answer is D.

When our behavior is out of sync with our attitudes it is called cognitive dissonance

Cognitive dissonance refers to a situation involving conflicting attitudes, beliefs or behaviors. Cognitive dissonance theory postulates that an underlying psychological tension is created when an individual's behavior is inconsistent with his or her thoughts and beliefs. This underlying tension then, motivates an individual to make an attitude change that would produce consistency between thoughts and behaviors.
