Hey Tracey, Well, we may learn some new behavior, but not be aware of how we are demonstrating a change and if we have good friends, we might get feedback. There are many terms to describe this. When others recognise it, you may not do so. I'll use your term 'Latent' - It's waiting there to come out. There's been a change waiting to happen and we never know all of it ourselves. So its good to talk! Sometimes change takes place and we've not noticed our incentive to do so... But it happens, usually through some interaction with others.When its "Observational", it may be you have had a quicker feedback from both yourself and others. And here you will observe it. Any change displayed will come from the inside/out. CBT is one term used for "Cognitive" Behavioural Change in a therapeutic setting. And in everyday life.That has proven to produce a quicker "display" of change..                    Tracey, you mention incentive to change, what do you want to change... If you don't know - lets say then its "Latent". There are a couple of terms you might ponder on - Freud and others used a term' unconscious', in other words waiting to surface -and that's about the Mind. Let's say your term Latent' is nearest to this. Jung use a term subconscious, in other words its there something waiting to surface that will effect change. Good to talk to you Tracey. What a great question. I hope this is useful and you have a good day - what do you want to change?

and that will have taken place in the part of the mind which is called the subconscious or the unconscious....These are terms produced by Freud et al [in fact Freud borrowed the term 'Id' for the unconscious from Groddeck]. So using your language whatever is displayed could be "Latent., Its there and it may be Observational to others, and at some point to you too. S it may be observaed by others, or it may be observed by you. Today, CBT Cognitive Behavkioural Therapy, is popular for showing quick results and an individual might notice their behavuiouir
