It’s scientific that 90% of our mind is subconscious and the minor rest is conscious. Most of activities such as walking, eating, breathing and etc. that have been habituated in our mind are controlled by subconscious mind. Subconscious mind is subjective and like a memory bank stores everything that ever happens. The conscious part that makes up 10% of the brain that thinks and perceives the word to do something deliberately.

Hossein Hariri

Thanks for your reply.
Corrections: ?
etc. means ‘and others’. So avoid using ‘and’ before it.

mandana

Good point!

Hossein Hariri

Thanks.

Hajar

The most recent brain research strongly indicates that the subconscious mind controls 90% of our choices and the conscious mind controls 10 %. The function of your subconscious mind is to store and retrieve data. Its job is to ensure that you respond exactly the way you are programmed. The Conscious Mind is the gardener who plants the seeds (thoughts) into the soil which is the Subconscious Mind. Your subconscious mind is like a huge memory bank. Its capacity is virtually unlimited. It permanently stores everything that ever happens to you. It does not think or reason independently; it merely obeys the commands it receives from your conscious mind.

Hossein Hariri

Dear Hajar, thank you so much for this comprehensive reply. 🙏
With the help you your informative reply, I try to make my conscious mind even more conscious of my subconscious mind.

Hajar

You’re welcome. Thanks, You add great point !!! ?

Hossein Hariri

I should thank you more.

2. do you think whether subconscious mind is more important in making decisions or conscious mind?

Hossein Hariri

Thanks for your question.
Does anybody care to criticize this question grammatically?

Hajar

1. Do you….?
2. Whether is commonly followed by a to- infininitive to talks about the choice between two or more possibilities.
Do you think whether subconscious mind is more important to make decisions or conscious mind?

Hossein Hariri

I admire your efforts to make corrections. 🏵
You are right, the first word of each sentence should be capitalized.
About the function of ‘whether’, in fact, it could be used in this case, too. So, there is no strong objection.

Hajar

Your subconscious mind is an incredible power that you have yet to develop and use to it’s full potential. It is pretty powerful when it comes to creative problem solving. We receive ideas from it at random, unpredictable moments. For example, many of us have experienced solutions to problems just popping into our minds when doing something like taking a shower or going for a walk. Also, there are many famous examples of scientists and artists finding that their best ideas come to them in a dream or just appear in their mind in any place. It’s clearly their subconscious mind that is producing them.

Hossein Hariri

?
Exactly! And the most tangible example is the case of Archimedes when he was taking a shower and realized how to measure the density of objects by dint of water and yelled “Eureka!”.

fatemeh

As Brian Tracy says: Your conscious mind commands and your subconscious mind obeys. In fact it is our conscious mind which manipulates the subconscious mind, like a computer which is programmed by humans in order to work. So both the conscious and subconscious minds are involved in decision making. But the power is in the hands of the conscious mind, since it can govern and handle the subconscious mind.

Hossein Hariri

Perfect! Thank you. ✌️?
The point is that these two minds are delicately interrelated to each other. In other words, it is true that your conscious mind governs your subconscious mind. However, from another perspective, there are many occasions on which your conscious mind is actually dominated by your past memories, experiences, etc., in a word, your subconscious mind.
We will definitely discuss this challenging point in the class.

fatemeh

Thank you.

Hossein Hariri

You’re quite welcome. I should thank you, too.

To answer this question, we have to divide our decisions to two different groups.First group is includes ordinary decisions such as, reaction to touch hot iron or reaction to sharp light etc. which are make majority proportion of our decisions. Second group is about important decisions like marriage, choosing career, which are make minority proportion of our decisions. Personally, i believe second group is more important than first one and has more significant effect on our life quality. Since second group is related to conscious mind, so conscious mind is more important in making decisions.

Hossein Hariri

Thank you for your reply.
Corrections:
Divide sth into sth else
The first group includes
Before ordinal numbers (first, second, Nth…) followed by nouns, use ‘the’. ➡ the second group

mandana

I think one of the important sources of decisions are dreams and The subconscious is where dreams are stored.

Hossein Hariri

You think right. Your subconscious mind is the main source of your dreams.

3. Do we have the ability of cleaning or deleting the undesirable events from our subconscious mind?

Hossein Hariri

I like this question so much.
Corrections: 👆🏽
Ability to do sth – capability of doing sth

Hajar

Your subconscious mind is an unquestioning servant that works day and night to make your behavior fits a pattern consistent with your emotionalized thoughts, hopes, and desires. All your habits of thinking and acting are stored in your subconscious mind. The Conscious Mind is the Computer Programmer who programs encouraging, successful, positive thoughts or worry, doubt, and fear into the Subconscious Mind. The Subconscious Mind is like the software that will obey any command you give it. Your mind can create wonderful things for you, if you know how to use that power and how to send the right messages to your subconscious.

Hossein Hariri

Such an extraordinary metaphor!
I learned so much. Thank you.

Hossein Hariri

Just a simple recommendation.

Mind has a huge power and our will could make it more huge. While we ignore unpleased memories repeatedly, this conscious effort would prosper gradually.

Hossein Hariri

Excellent! ?
Corrections:
unpleased ➡ unpleasant
