comment Term for incentives working without conscious awareness
Automatic activation is starting to look good too. I like your guidance toward those terms (automatic/controlled) with their emphasis on decision making. That is more central to the effects of incentives.

comment Term for incentives working without conscious awareness
I think the best noun to use is "cognition", and the closest thing I can find so far to the answer I'm ultimately looking for is implicit cognition. Found that using the type-ahead at wikipedia, typing "implicit ..." and wading through the suggestions. I respectfully disagree with your new last paragraph here; either audience would need a specific term, adjective + noun. "Implicit" by itself, or with a noun that's never used in the literature, is too generic to be useful to anyone.

comment What is the field that studies community responses to incentives?
If you haven't run across them already, I'd recommend books by Malcolm Gladwell, particularly The Tipping Point. It has a competing explanation for the crime drop (less graffiti), though personally I found the Steve's argument more convincing (more abortions).

comment Term for incentives working without conscious awareness
Very helpful. What's the noun? Would you talk about implicit incentives? Implicit behavior? Implicit motivation? I gather these adjectives you mention have become part of the technical language in the different areas of literature, and so I'd like to know how the concepts tend to be phrased there. Your favorite (and @Jeff's) has a wide meaning in everyday English.
