Example of Implicit Memory

Implicit memory is effectively a subconscious, 'reflex' memory, created by previous learning experiences. The concept is that this type of memory doesn't even necessarily involve being consciously aware of the previous experience. Common usage of the word 'implicit' is the active factor in the terminology. The theory of 'implicit' mental states is that the mental machinery and functions are basically built in to the subconscious.

Examples of Implicit Memory:

Basic daily functions which were learned by doing, but not necessarily consciously remembered.
Peeling an orange with your fingers.
Common usage context: Some people would say that after a heavy night, just standing up is based on implicit memory.
