  1. This is a huge question. From the moment a person appears, people try to answer it. To answer this question, even a special science has emerged – psychology. Many, however, sincerely calling themselves psychologists, reduce everything to explanations of the brain structure. Although I was taught in my time-believe me, they were not the worst teachers (Leontiev, Galperin, Luria, Zeigarnik, etc. – everyone who has encountered psychology immediately recognizes these names) – so, A. N. Leontiev taught us, students, that if we try to explain mental processes with the help of physiology (or sociology), we must go to study as a biologist (or sociologist), and psychology is about the inner world of a person. So, the inner world of a person (as I understand Leontiev) this is an activity that is not perceived by a person and which has two perceived manifestations: behavior and the psyche. The subject of psychology is semantic experiences that we try to convey to the “external” world (external in relation to activity), using both physical methods (behavioral, bodily) and mental tools. Of course, the brain stands out among the bodily tools of activity, which is why it attracts the attention of researchers, but it is only our tool, and not an organ of the psyche, as many believed in former times, and still believe today. French philosophers in the eighteenth century once said that the brain secretes consciousness in the same way that the liver secretes bile, and many still think so today.

    Difficult? Probably! But you also asked a difficult question. In response to this question, people have created many, many volumes of books. There is no definitive answer yet.

  2. The inner world of a person is a conscious representation of a person about any processes that occur in his life. I think that it can be divided into 2 types – external and internal.

    About external:

    • A person is faced with a situation that touches him in some way. And here is a verbal description of how he sees this situation and has his inner world on an external event. Here it is important to remember that the process of perception works directly, which somehow “refracts” the event in internal experiences and looking at it.

    About internally:

    • A person can describe their inner feelings, feelings, emotions in relation to any event or phenomenon. And this is also the inner world of a person. So, for example, such a phenomenon as loneliness, different people will describe differently. And this is the definition of the inner world.

    I think that speaking about the inner world, the most important question here is-HOW does a person see/perceive/experience a specific situation, phenomenon?

  3. The inner world is a person's Spirituality.

    Spirituality is brain activity without the involvement of the body. Thought process. Sleep. This is the secret world of a person, or at least it must be secret if a person wants to keep it. In this world, a person dreams, fantasizes, comes up with plans, travels and can quite live in this world as he wants. But if a person takes something from the inner world and transfers it to reality, or tells other people about their plans, then their Spirituality is destroyed and they will have to create it anew.

  4. A person can be compared to an iceberg, which outwardly consists of two parts: a small surface (how other people see you) and a huge underwater (an inner world that only you can observe).

    At the same time, the less someone is familiar with another person, the smaller part they can observe.

  5. Very good question. And a very important one.
    the inner world of a person is his soul, consisting of a conscious part and an unconscious one.
    The Bible compares the structure of man with the structure of the Temple, which consisted of three divisions: the so-calledOuter Court (body, flesh),�Sanctuary(soul – mind, will, feelings) andThe Holy of Holies ( heart, spirit). The outer courtyard was separated from the inner part of the Temple by a curtain. By this analogy, the inner world of a person is what is hidden from external eyes, is behind the “veil” – your thoughts, goals, desires, motives, everything hidden and so on..Which you open only to the closest ones, if you do. And even then, there are things that are not told to your loved ones.
    It is also noteworthy that even the inner part of a person is divided into two parts – one of which, as I have already said, is conscious to them, and the other is unconscious, sometimes even hidden from the person himself and actually moving them, although he believes that something else is driving him. That is why a person must know himself – otherwise he will see everything in a false light and, accordingly, live in a false world.�

    9 A man's heart is most deceitful, and is exceedingly corrupt; who will know it?
    10 I, the LORD, search the heart and test the bowels, that I may reward every man according to his way and according to the fruit of his works.
    (Jer. 17: 9,10)

    21 For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
    22 theft, covetousness, malice, deceit, lasciviousness, an envious eye, blasphemy, pride, folly-23
    all these evils come from within and defile a person.
    (Mark 7: 21-23)

    13 Who will see their errors? Purge me from my secret
    ways, 14 and keep your servant from my wilful ways, so that they may not prevail over me. Then I will be blameless and pure from the great corruption.
    (Psalm 18: 13,14)

  6. There is one rather simple fact.

    You, as a certain person for people around you, and “you”, as a mental entity, are quite different phenomena, sometimes this difference is very significant.

    We can say that for yourself, there is you with your own desires for “conformity” and dependence on society, and there is “you” with your own “subjectivity” hidden from everyone. So everything that makes your “you” “created and maintained” is your “inner” world.

    Why is this possible with us? Grandpa Freud said a lot of interesting things about it…
