I investigated the websites

I investigated the websites on tacit knowledge last week.  However, I would like to add my own experiment on tacit knowledge.   As a non-native speaker, I still tend to analyze the grammar while people talk.  Even when I speak I consult to the grammar factory in my head because I am conscious.  But throughout readings, it was striking that speech(spoken) is not connected to the meaning.  In my experiment, I will describe an image to my roommate first in conscious state, and second in unconscious state.  How I am gonna do the latter is I will utter any thoughts on the image right after I wake up or right before I go to bed (when i'm really tired) Then, I will ask my friend which explanation gave her a predicament on what I'm telling her.
