How to open all thoughts in Disco Elysium

We share all the thoughts available in Disco Elysium, as well as the ways to unlock and the bonuses they provide

In addition to the standard attributes and skills that you can use to upgrade your character in Disco Elysium, certain actions allow you to unlock thoughts. They can be associated with anything from the worldview to the hobbies of the protagonist. Most thoughts have their advantages and disadvantages, often affecting skills in a positive or negative way. But there are also unique ones. For example, some can increase the amount of experience gained, others can heal the hero, and others can reward you with money when you take a specific action. At the same time, thoughts never influence how the dialogues will develop.

In addition, to activate the thought itself, you will have to spend a skill point. That is, to invest it not in the skill tree, but immediately go to the room of thoughts and select the desired one. This will open up an additional thought slot in the study. When you have done this, select the desired thought and start the study by clicking on the “Assimilate” button. Research time varies from thought to thought. The most effective and best thoughts always have a longer assimilation time. You get a temporary bonus while the thought is assimilated (it may not be there), as well as a permanent one after the process is completed.

[incut] It is important to read books or interact with the characters to advance research after assimilation has started. This alone guarantees the current of time in the world of Disco Elysium! [/ Icnut]

In the room of thoughts, you can unlock up to 12 slots for thoughts. To get rid of an already assimilated thought, fill in all the cells, and then spend another skill point to erase from memory what was learned earlier. Then investigate any thought you want. All thoughts available in the game can be obtained in one of two time frames. Until the beginning of the third day, the opening of the water seal, only one part of the thoughts can be opened. With the onset of the third day, this list will expand, and absolutely all thoughts will be available to you.

[icnut] All thoughts are in alphabetical order [/ icnut]
