Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalytic theory of personality defines the unconscious mind as an accumulation of feelings, thoughts, urges, desires, and memories that are outside your own conscious awareness. 

The thoughts you are thinking in your unconscious mind are your basic instincts and urges and the reason why we keep these thoughts in our unconscious mind (though we don't even realize it) is that they might be seen as unacceptable and irrational should we act on them. 

The unconscious mind can also include repressed memories and emotions that continue to have an underlying effect on your thoughts and behavior.

However, because we aren’t aware of the unconscious influences, we do nothing to restrain those thoughts — but they are always there and you can choose to notice them or not.

Kimney Nguyen is an undergraduate student in Neuroscience and she recently became popular on TikTok for posting a couple videos about a psychology test to help you connect with your unconscious mind

So grab a pen and some paper, and answer the questions as they're asked, before reading on to the next question.

Nguyen recommends trying not to think too hard about your answers. Rather, it should be your first thought or instinct. 

She explains that if you don’t believe the test answers are that accurate, it might be your unconscious mind spilling some inner secrets about you. 

Questions to ask yourself

You’re walking in the woods and you’re with somebody.

Who are you with?

The person you thought of is the most important person in your life at the moment.

You keep going through the woods and you hear some rustling in the bushes and an animal pops out.

What’s the animal? And what’s the first thing you do when it comes out?

The size of the animal is the amount of your stress, and how you reacted to seeing the email is how you react to your stress.

You go further into the woods and you come to an opening and there’s a house.

What’s the size of the house? And do you see a fence?

The size of the house is the size of your ambition and if you saw a fence that means you’re narrow-minded. If there's no fence, then you’re more open-minded.

You decide to explore this house. You go to the dining room and you see a dining table.

Do you see anything on or around the table? 

The more you see on the table then the happier you are in your life at the moment.

After seeing the dining room, you want to explore the rest of the house and you see a cup on the ground.

What is the cup made out of? And what do you do when you see the cup?

The durability of the material of the cup represents the durability of the relationship with the person you said you thought of in the first question. What you do when you see the cup, is what you want to do with or to that person.

You then decide you want to go to the backyard and you see a body of water.

What type of body of water is it? You also want to get across, what do you do to get across?

The size of the water is the size of your sexual desire. The more water that touches you body when crossing the body of water, the more you want to get a little freaky in bed.
