3 Jungs Theory of the PsycheThree Part PsycheThe Ego The Personal Unconscious and the Collective Unconscious 4 Jungs Theory of the PsycheThe Ego
Jungs theory divides the psyche into three parts. The first is the ego which Jung identifies with the conscious mind.
5 Jungs Theory of the PsycheThe Personal Unconscious
The personal unconscious is like most peoples understanding of the unconscious in that it includes both memories that are easily brought to mind and those that have been suppressed for some reason.
6 Jungs Theory of the PsycheThe Collective Unconscious
You could call collective unconscious your psychic inheritance. It is the reservoir of our experiences as a species a kind of knowledge we are all born with. And yet we can never be directly conscious of it. It influences all of our experiences and behaviors most especially the emotional ones but we only know about it indirectly by looking at those influences.
7 Jungs Theory of the PsycheContents of the Collective Unconscious
The contents of the collective unconscious are called archetypes. An archetype is an unlearned tendency to experience things in a certain way.
8 Jungs Theory of the PsycheArchetypes The Self
The Self is the archetype of wholeness. The Self can be understood as the central organizing principle of the psyche that fundamental and essential aspect of human personality which gives cohesion meaning direction and purpose to the whole psyche. It is who you believe you are.
9 Jungs Theory of the PsycheArchetypes The Shadow
Sex and the life instincts in general are of course represented somewhere in Jungs system. They are a part of an archetype called the shadow. It derives from our pre-human animal past when our concerns were limited to survival and reproduction and when we werent self-conscious.
10 Jungs Theory of the PsycheArchetypes The Persona
The persona represents your public image. The word is obviously related to the word person and personality and comes from a Latin word for mask. So the persona is the mask you put on before you show yourself to the outside world. Although it begins as an archetype by the time we are finished realizing it it is the part of us most distant from the collective unconscious.
11 Jungs Theory of the PsycheThe Complex
What happens when your entire self differs from your persona If you deny and suppress it the energy will go towards the development of a complex. A complex is a pattern of suppressed thoughts.
12 Jungs Theory of the PsycheThe Complex takes over
Heres where the problem comes If you pretend all your life that you are only good that you dont even have the capacity to lie and cheat and steal and kill then all the times when you do good that other side of you goes into a complex around the shadow. That complex will begin to develop a life of its own and it will haunt you.
If it goes on long enough the complex may take over may possess you and you might wind up with a multiple personality.
13 Jungs Theory of the PsycheThe Complex takes over
In ordinary human experience the experience of being taken over by a complex is what we point to with language such as I was beside myself or I dont know what got into me. Jung wrote vividly of the autonomous quality of the complexes.
