Alief

An alief is a belief-like attitude, behavior, or expectation, especially one that contradicts the person's explicit beliefs.

A person standing on a transparent balcony may believe that they are safe, but alieve that they are in danger. A person watching a sad movie may believe that the characters are completely fictional, but their aliefs may lead them to cry nonetheless. A person may believe that they should be working, but have an alief that leads them to procrastinate (see also akrasia).
