Conscience is to be aware of things. You are conscience of her feelings, you are aware of her feelings. The opposite conscience is unconscience because you aren't aware of anything. When you look at a table and you notice a cup on it you are conscience of the cup, it becomes known by your brain because you will learn that there is a cup there. Some people are more conscience of things then others.

Conscience is the ability to know right from wrong and is coupled with a sense that one should act accordingly. It is conformity to ones own sense of proper conduct.

Conscience has several alternative definitions. It may be defined as the motivation that arises from the moral or ethical principles that may govern a person's thoughts or actions. It may also mean conformity to a person's own sense of correct behaviour for example 'Never deviate from the dictates of one's conscience'. It may also denote a person's feeling of shame when doing something they consider immoral for example 'She has no conscience about her cruelty'. According to ancient Oriental religions conscience may be defined as the inherent wisdom that people have acquired in their past lives. It is therefore a person's inborn sense of right and wrong.

In psychology conscience is defined by Sigmund Freud as thoughts originating from the superego. It may take its cue from what we learn in childhood from role models like parents. The result of disobeying one's conscience is 'guilt' which in excessive quantities will develop into neurosis.
