This research aims to analyze the iGeneration in facing the impact of Covid-19 pandemic in cognitive dissonance theory by linking interpersonal communication through communication psychology. This research was a case study of a conservative generation of 22 years of age with excellent academic achievements. The results show that of the three mental mechanisms that consist of selective prevents dissonance, post-decision dissonance creates a need for reassurance, and minimal justification for action induces a shift in attitude, the informants have different perspectives and perceptions that affect self-efficacy on the issue as cognitive dissonance.
