I was watching "Molly's Game" where a conversation between Molly and her psychologist dad appear in later life of Molly (Molly didnt have very good relationship with her dad and wanted to piss him off often when she was young)
Dad: I knew that you know that I cheated with mom
Molly: i didnt know that till I was 20 years old
Dad: You knew it when you saw me with someone in my car, you were 5 years old, you didnt know what you saw but you have known since then
What is this psychlogical effect where one doesnt yet know that he/she knows something and perhaps act out something to its effect?
