What is natural concept?

A natural concept is a mental representation of events or objects drawn from personal experience, because of this ability to create a mental representation, kind of like a mental blueprint, we are able to perform previously learned tasks (like tying shoes) without needing instructions each time.

What is the difference in a formal concept and a natural concept?
