The concept is popular in the media and philosophy that to understand a thing, one should have a name for it. In Star War it is widely known with "Named must your fear be before banish it you can", said by the character Yoda. I'm looking for a term widely used in cognitive science in general, not just in psychology of fears. It would be the opposite state of mental block:
A mental block is an uncontrollable suppression, or repression of painful or unwanted thoughts/memories. Also can be an inability to continue or complete a train of thought, as in the case of writer's block. In the case of writer's block, many find it helpful to take a break and revisit their topic.
All questions asking for terminology share this phenomenon, because without knowing the correct keyword it is hard to advance in searching for literature.
• What is the term for the "knowing what you think but can't explain it" phenomenon?
• Is there any evidence that language is the limit of the world?
• Nation, How Large a Vocabulary is Needed For Reading and Listening?
