Mostly unconscious. Peak efficiency is reached when running on auto-pilot. I suppose if someone asked I could break it down. Although it is irritating when someone asks why something works and I can't quickly articulate the reason.
What CJ said. Sometimes it works consciously, sometimes the conscious work just provides a framework for the subconscious to work on. Most problems are solved consciously, but if I'm out of ideas, I don't spend too much time trying to force a good outcome, and for big problems, the voluntary coma works wonders.
