Rapt: Social Expectations/Motivations

Identifying one reason for seemingly inexplicable behavior, Freud observed that you may be subconsciously attending to a subliminal cue that sparks a hidden motivation.  Imagine that although you have every intention of living it up with the gang on Friday night, when you arrive at the bar, you feel and act oddly glum and grouchy. Little do you know that a seemingly trivial exchange with a manipulative colleague earlier in the day had subconsciously reminded you of your interactions with a bossy parent and stuck you with a sullen teenager’s motivation and manners.

We constantly carry our subconscious with us, effecting several other parts of our disposition (both internal and external).

Staying present & in the moment, without pretense, can be difficult.  If you find yourself distracted, best practice is to acknowledge why you are elsewhere, set it aside, and re-focus your intentions.
