Human psychology is a truly fascinating subject. It’s something that’s always interested me since I was a child.
Many things about psychology come off as simply being common sense, but it’s when you really dig in and understand the roots of why we do things, we truly begin to understand ourselves.
The subconscious is the mental formation that we are not fully aware of. Despite the lack of track-ability and knowledge it strongly influences our actions and feelings. In psychology, it is thought of as the more base and animalistic side of our personalities.
By it’s definition, it is the part of the mind that operates outside of ‘consciousness’. We can’t intentionally control this aspect of ourselves. Our imagination comes from the subconscious. We store our raw emotions and thoughts there.
“The conscious mind may be compared to a fountain playing in the sun and falling back into the great subterranean pool of subconscious from which it rises.” – Sigmund Freud
Freud was determined to discover ways of penetrating the subconscious mind, in order to learn more about the hidden structure of the human psyche.
