tip of the iceberg_

The conscious mind has:
* Limited processing capacity
* Short term memory (about 20 seconds)
* The ability to manage 1 to 3 events at a time
* Impulses that travel at 120 to 140 mph
* The ability to process an average of 2,000 bits of information per second
The Subconscious Mind has:
Expanded processing capacity
Long term memory (past experiences, attitudes, values, and beliefs)
The ability to manage thousands of events at a time
Impulses that travel at over 100,000 mph

The ability to process an average of 4,000,000,000 bits of information per second


Think of your mind as an iceberg.

The part of the iceberg you see, the part above water, is your conscious mind.
It represents only about one sixth of your actual mental capacity, and the part below water (the other five sixths) is your subconscious mind.

As you can see, the subconscious mind is far more powerful
than the conscious mind.
