  • When we don’t pay attention to how we feel, we have a lot of ideas, urges, and memories that we keep in our unconscious minds. It can have inappropriate or unpleasant contents in the unconscious, such as sensations of pain, worry, or conflict.
  • Anything that could potentially enter the conscious consciousness is preconscious.
  • Preconscious memories are not the same as memories that may be recalled quickly, such as identifying your route home. They are memories that have been suppressed that we retrieve for a certain reason at a given moment.
  • Freud used procedures like dream interpretation and freedom of thought (the sharing of totally random thoughts) to bring actual sentiments to light to pinpoint the source of psychological suffering.

Our brain has an independent memory system. The memory system comprises things that you can understand in one state of your mind, but you get tackled in it in the other state of mind. Dreams are a subconscious part of a person’s memory. These are the imagination of memory which contains images from the other part of our mind. You can dream things that you do not know, but a relation between dreams is going in your subconscious mind. Dreams can be related to what you act and what other people do. Freud described this situation of dreams with an example of kids. If a kid plays a game regularly but still cannot explain it when you take the game away from them. The rules remain in their mind, but they cannot process their thoughts.

There were no political rights for women, and there were no laws either to control men’s authority over children and women. In this world, Freud was the one who introduced the benefits of birth control pills to strengthen women and reduce the political tension between the two genders.

There were a set of consequences that led to women’s empowerment. These include several diseases. To learn more, watch 2017 Personality 09: Freud and the Dynamic Unconscious a lecture by Jordan B. Peterson to clarify your ideas about personality.
