One thing to start with: Unconscious conditioning means that every substance can be psychologically linked to every other substance.
Similarity has everything that is approximately the same in terms of events, shape, space, time, location, etc.
In particular, seeing, feeling, smell, sound, taste, movement and similarity are generated through experiences.
The brain prefers to work with similarities. This activates what fits the current topic, has been experienced and saved.
Advantage: It is the simplest and fastest way to assess and react to something, according to the motto: what is similar also has similar effects.
Disadvantage: You don't look closely. This can lead to misjudgements about the present.
Who e.g. having had negative experiences in childhood, it is not uncommon for adults to transfer them unconsciously to similar situations, even though they do not match the current situation. As a result, he reacts inadequately.
This may often be the case; but often also not, like at first impression, ratings, etc.
The similarity is particularly unfortunate among traumatized people.
