There are three levels of self-awareness: conscious awareness, the level at which you can know your actions, and the level at which you can know your thoughts.
True: You don’t need to think about it.
In one study, participants who were unaware of their thoughts were able to remember their thoughts better than the others.
The level at which you can know your thoughts is quite different from the level at which you can know your actions.
To answer this question, I would say that if you can know your actions, then you have an innate ability, rather than a learned ability. That ability allows you to do certain things. You may be aware of your actions in some way, but you are not aware that you are able to do these actions.
I think that you can answer this question right now.
I’m going to go out on a limb and say that you can’t know your thoughts, but you can know your actions. I don’t think that you can do the things that you are capable of doing with a conscious thought. You can’t decide to break into a bank and shoot the bank manager in the head or shoot the president in the head, but you can know that you are capable of doing so.
The problem is that people are too quick to label everything that isn’t consciously thought, as “unconscious”. This is a generalization, but the idea is that there are some situations that are not conscious. For example, you can hear music in the background, but you can’t consciously think that you are hearing music. So if you’re not consciously aware of some things, then you can’t do them. This has been my problem with my husband’s job.
This is what I think is a generalization, but I think it is more accurate to say that the problem is that we just have a hard time telling whether something is conscious or not. I think the best way to describe it would be that our brains are a little bit confused about what is conscious.
