From the time I was about ten years old, I would fuel up customers' cars. One of our customers was an executive at a firm in the city who spent most of his time on business trips.From the time I was old enough to notice girls; I thought his daughter, Jennifer, was very attractive. When Jennifer was in the car, she would flirt with me while I washed the car windows.Why does it still feel like an emotional war zone in here at times?

The problem is that, as Thomas Lewis and his co-authors write in , “This mental machinery does not evaluate; it cannot detect whether the larger world runs in accordance with the scheme it has drawn from the emotional microcosm of a family.” Put simply, unloved daughters unconsciously rely on a picture of how relationships work that is warped in important ways.

The brain stores explicit memories—recalling riding on your father’s shoulders when you were little or the way your grandmother looked—much later in a child’s development than the unconscious, “implicit” memories which it stores right after birth or, perhaps, even our understanding of them—as well as the emotional responses they evoke. D, suggest that the right and left hemispheres of the brain may have specialized functions; the right hemisphere “may use past experiences (either factual or emotional) and thus would be more adept when reasoning involves familiar scenarios.” They also hypothesize that the right hemisphere “holds representations of the emotional states associated with the events experienced by the individual.” All of this is well and good if your childhood experiences are those involving reliability, trust, and love, and your implicit memories are those that signify that love and relationship are about caretaking, protection, loyalty, and understanding.
