How Your Subconscious Mind Controls Your Behavior

It is a common notion among people that all of your behavior is entirely in control of the conscious mind. If you fall in the same category of people, then you are about to get to know something really surprising. How amazed would you be if we told you that your subconscious mind has as much to do with your behavior as the conscious mind?

Let us take the liberty of mentioning how exactly does the subconscious mind play its role in defining a certain behavior of an individual.Without further ado, let’s take a closer look at the role of your subconscious mind in defining your behavior.

   There is no argument over the fact that your subconscious mind works more like the reflex system of your body. If a ball is thrown at you with speed, your reflexes jump in and make you move yourself out of the path of the ball in order to protect yourself. This is your body acting without the help of the conscious mind. Keep it in mind that your subconscious mind is in charge of defining two kinds of scenarios. The first is the one that includes those things that you are not okay with. And the other one consists of complex circumstances like the feeling of hurt, weakness or shame.

   The second one of the aforementioned scenarios is what causes your subconscious mind to take control of the unnatural behavior or response that you may be present every once in a while. For instance, you failed to be successful in school as a child and your failures, weaknesses, or any other similar trauma that you may have experienced in your childhood led to a formation of a firm opinion that you are worthless, weak, or not okay in one way or the other.

   The failure or trauma is forgotten with the conscious mind with the passage of time, but the subconscious mind doesn’t let go of it as quickly as some would think. Subconscious mind generates pain points associated with such traumas. During the later stage of your life, if any experiences ends up activating the pain point in your mind, it is going to give the entire control of your behavior to the subconscious mind. These are the circumstances when you start to feel helpless cause your emotions and behavior has gone out of your control in the first place.

   In the light of the information mentioned above, it can almost be taken for granted that your subconscious mind plays an as important of a role in defining the behavior as the conscious mind. Since each one of us has certain pain point and every once in a while, any one of the current scenario is going to activate the pain point, it is next to impossible that you have never experienced losing control and letting your subconscious mind define your behavior entirely without you having any kind of a power or authority over it.
