Research has shown that our conscious attention can attend to 5-9 items simultaneously. All other information is processed by the unconscious mind.

Communication between people of different cultures and subcultures can sometimes cause unexpected suffering and conflicts. So, understanding of unconscious communication can avoid such conflicts.
