It describes that sometimes we perform actions that have been guided by the unconscious but we are unaware to what is actually going on within that part of the diagrammatic model of the mind represented by an iceberg. Through this research mainly by Freud, techniques used in society (dream analysis, free association and slips of the tongue) have been developed to try and release what is within the unconscious so that we can avoid any problems that have been repressed. Dream analysis has been used to symbolize certain events that can intervene with a person's life.
