    I think more thought could be put in the

    exploration of the mind, exploring both the constructive and destructive aspects of our mind. Allowing both your constructive and destructive fantasies/needs to blossom, to keep balance in life. These 'light' and 'dark' needs and thoughts both are result of who we are and should...

    Mind and Myth Being

    that he's the philosophical ancestor to Joseph Campbell, I'm bound to find Jung's work interesting. His ideas about myth's place in the mind are central to my personal philosophy, and I, like he and Campbell, have tried to mesh my intellectual and mystical/creative sides to...

    Jung In My Life

    A Borderline Obsession

    I first read Jung in probably 2009 and since then have read quite a few of his books. His ideas on synchronicity, individuation, and the unconscious really resonate with me and I feel a connection with most of his views. I've become very interested in Taoism through him and it...

    I have been interested in his field of

    Psychology ever since I played Persona 4 Golden. It was a short while after that happened that I began using the terminology that I mentioned in my previous post. Carl Jungian Psychology just really hit home for me.

    I Can't Wait For This!!

     This is a trailer for a new film by one of my very favourite directors, David Cronenberg, about the schism in the friendship between Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. I can't wait!

    I have always found Jung's work on archetypes fascinating, where they come from, how they shape our psyche, including our physical body. Here is the man himself.

    Question About Personality Tests

    I was thinking about the idea that we are all our own worst psychologists, that we are not aware of our own unconscious desires, neuroses, etc. With tests such as the Meyers Briggs test, how are we to take the results of this self administered test? I feel kinda awkward when...
