Carl Jung

Carl Jung  

Carl Jung,  Psychologist, Psychiatrist, Journalist, Inventor (1875–1961) established analytical psychology. He advanced the idea of introvert and extrovert personalities and the power of the unconscious.

Carl Jung was born on July 26, 1875, in Kesswil, Switzerland. Jung believed in the “complex,” or emotionally charged associations. He collaborated with Sigmund Freud, but disagreed with him about the sexual basis of neuroses. Jung founded analytical psychology, advancing the idea of introvert and extrovert personalities, archetypes and the power of the unconscious. Jung published numerous works during his lifetime, and his ideas have had reverberations traveling beyond the field of psychiatry, extending into art, literature and religion as well. He died in 1961.

The ideas of Jung have generated renewed interest due to the writings, lectures and appearances of Canadian clinical psychologist, professor of psychology and best-selling author, Jordan Peterson.
