Both consciously and unconsciously, it storeswhatyou put into itespecially the emotions you associate with an experience. What your brain doesnt do is determine an unbiased valueof that informationitrecalls what has been stored,just like a hard drive would on a computer. In the case of a positive or negative experience, your brain takes that information in but does not fact check it for accuracy.
