(from Greek endo, inside), the term introduced by Arieti (1976) meaning a cognitive function which is realized in amorphous cognition; the diffuse and abstract idea often accompanied by strong but unverbalized emotions ('I know what I mean and feel, but I can't explain'). Endoceptual or non-representational states usually have place on the early stages of creative process such as incubation. The endocept is opposite to the concept, a mature form of cognition that can be expressed to other people by the person who experiences or produces it. The endocept has also been referred to by other authors as nonverbal, unconscious, or preconscious cognition.
