In psychology, the subconscious is the part of consciousness that is not currently in focal awareness.
The word “subconscious“ represents an anglicized version of the French subconscient as coined by the psychologist Pierre Janet who argued that underneath the layers of critical-thought functions of the conscious mind lay a powerful awareness that he called the subconscious mind.
Now, it’s no secret that we have skeletons in the closet. It’s part of our behavior and human nature to keep certain things private and it always will be.
Some people keep hundreds of secrets, while others only have a few (it depends on the person). A recent study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology found that the average person is keeping 13 secrets at any given moment. Researchers at Columbia Business School collected data and examined the same from ten previously conducted studies and looked at over 13,000 secrets to gain more insight on the habits people have when it comes to keeping secrets.
They found that all of the secrets can be divided in 38 common categories, which range from cheating on a spouse to hiding a medical condition to keeping a planned proposal under wraps. In addition, of those thirteen secrets that the average person holds, five of them have never been shared with another soul. While it’s all very interesting from this analytical perspective, from the human point of view, secrets can be stressful and downright burdensome. Many of the secrets we wish to keep to ourselves are sources of shame, guilt, or embarrassment and they weigh heavily on our shoulders.
In the end, secrets have their pros and cons just like everything else…
