Don’t eat the cake don’t eat the cake don’t eat the cake. Sound familiar - as you stare down a slab of chocolate cheesecake that’s been conveniently left in your fridge? And are you going to end up eating the cake? Probably. Are you going to blame your lack of willpower? Maybe. Are you going to blame the person who put the cake there? Definitely. But none of that is really the full story – the blame can actually be partially attributed to your subconscious mind, the part of you making decisions and influencing your behaviour without you being consciously aware that it’s happening.
How does it work? Your conscious mind
