Psychology and Unconscious Component

Self-change
I have a “bad habit” which is I am lazy. When I am doing something, I always think I can do it tomorrow because it is not late. Not only in school, but also I am lazy in my life. in school, I try to be a good student at the beginning of the semester. But then, I am going to think that I can do my homework until the last due day. I do not want to do homework when the day that the teacher gives me. Sometimes, if I finish homework early one time, next time I will be lazier. In the life, I like to do something I really like. If I feel that I do not really like it, I will not do it or do it later. For example, sometimes I cooked, but I do not want to wash dishes because there has a lot. So, I will put dishes in the bucket one night or two nights. Although I am lazy, I still do my job at the end. I am persecuted by this bad habit long time. I find three sources about how to change my laziness which are “How to Defeat Laziness: Causes of Laziness & Overcoming Laziness”, “How to Defeat Laziness: Causes of Laziness & Overcoming Laziness”, and “in changing your habits”. In “changing your habit”, Lawrence Wilson states that destructive and lazy habits inevitably lead to illness, poverty and despair. A first step to changing habits is to realize that all behavior is unconscious and mechanical. We are creatures of habit. This is why behavior and thought patterns are not easy to change. The unconscious component can be very deep and very old. We need to understand this, and then we can change the bad habits. According to Wilson, the first rule is do not rationalize, defend, justify or excuse your bad habits- no matter what. Second is put out and express and say to the universe or to the god that you are done with this habit and want this habit to go away. The Third is make up reasons to change the habit, if you must. The fourth is ask for guidance and help over again each day. The fifth is substitute better behaviors or habits rather than just deny oneself

    being may be able to grasp. The Personal and Collective Unconscious by Carl Jung believes that "the unconscious contains only those parts of the personality which could just as well be conscious and are in fact suppressed only through upbringing"(344). In a more simplistic form, he says that the human brain is actually a more unconscious thought process and that what the brain produces to be conscious can actually be described as unconscious.

    Interpreting The Freudian ‘Unconscious’ Few theories hold more intrigue than that of human psychology. Throughout history, many have sought to decode the structure of the mind. Amongst those who were determined to investigate the nature of psychic material, one of the most prominent remains Sigmund Freud (also known as “the archaeologist of the mind”). Freud had very pronounced views on the innate components of human psychology, within which one idea remained central - the ‘unconscious’ mind; he uses this…

    "The Royal Road To The Unconscious" What is a dream? - A dream is an event transpiring in that world belonging to the mind when the objective senses have withdrawn into rest or oblivion. I chose to write my paper on dream interpretation/analysis because it was always a subject that intrigued me because one will never dream the same dream, just like no two flowers are ever the same; you fail to find the same fragrance in the rose at all times.

    Conscious & Unconscious The predominant school of thought on hypnosis is that it is a way to access a person's unconscious mind directly. Normally, you are only aware of the thought processes in your conscious mind. You consciously think over the problems that are right in front of you, consciously choose words as you speak, consciously try to remember where you left your keys. But in doing all these things, your conscious mind is working hand-in-hand with your unconscious mind, the unconscious part…

    Personal and Collective Unconscious To many, the unconscious is a section of our minds that is inconceivable and almost nonexistent. Like many things in life, what we cannot explain, we cannot accept.
