Through times we often develop thoughts about how we are as an individual, as if it were a solid component. Scientific for one to say. The mind holds an interesting facet in that it is not seen, and it is controlled by temptation and instinct. Our desires have been proven to change over time and then we often hold two differing thoughts on it.
One that we have biologically grown and our biological state dictates change in our subconscious preferences. And two that we have mentally been stimulated with external stimuli developing a tolerance to an eventual change in preference over time.
I hold an intuitive presumption that it is universally accepted that an individual can develop a preference to certain things over time.
A small anecdote used by permission of prplchknz.
I follow the thought that each individual has their own levels of malleability in desire but I would also like to further it with the thought of what constitutes to that malleability. Is it psychology or neuroscience and/or genetics?
Through thoughts of psychology would that malleability also change if one were to move from one mental state to another?
The conscious and the unconscious mind can constantly be at odds throughout life. We can consciously adhere to being something more discomforting than who we are at a comfort level. But then that is also an adjustment of comfort. You are uncomfortable being something you find comfortable at a different place so essentially, it can be a natural response. But that full wiring holding you to do a particular something at a particular situation in all situations is the tree to who you are at that present moment.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
