I'm really confused about the difference between "unconsciously" and "subconsciously"! Can you please show me the difference in an easy-to-understand way? Maybe with examples. Thanks a million.
My dictionary says "subconscoius feelings are hidden in your mind and affect your behavior, but you don't know you have them". So are the following examples correct with "subconsciously"?
He killed my dog, but I don't know why, I like him subconsciously.
It was a formal ceremony and unfortunately I got hammererd. It was my turn to give the lecture, you know it's natural to make blunders while you're drunk. But subconsciously I did it in the best way.
Any help please?
I'd say if you do something unconsciously you didn't do it consciously but since you did it, you must have done it subconsciously. i.e. you weren't really aware you did it but your subconscious took care of it. So in practice there wouldn't be a real difference.
Beyond the adverb, note however that the adjective unconscious means someone has lost consciousness i.e. has fainted, is in a coma or knocked out.
