For different utilization, see Habit (disambiguation).

A propensity (or wont) is a standard of conduct that is rehashed customarily and has a tendency to happen unconsciously.[1][2][3] In the American Journal of Psychology (1903) it is characterized along  these  lines: "A propensity, from the point of view of brain science, is a pretty much settled method for considering, willing, or feeling gained through past redundancy of a mental experience."[4] Habitual conduct regularly goes unnoticed in persons showing it, in light of the fact that an individual does not have to take part in examination toward oneself when undertaking routine undertakings. Propensities are at times compulsory.[3][5] The procedure by which new practices get to be programmed is propensity arrangement. Old propensities are difficult to get out from under and new propensities are tricky to structure in light of the fact that the behavioral examples we rehash are engraved in our neural pathways,[6] however it is conceivable to structure new propensities through repetition.[7]

As practices are rehashed in a reliable connection, there is an incremental expand in the connection between the setting and the activity. This builds the automaticity of the conduct in that context.[8] Features of a programmed conduct are all or some of: proficiency, absence of mindfulness, unintentionality, uncontrollability.[9]
