holy fucking cow carl jung was cool
a totally scientific and professional guide to jung and his theories
that’s how serious i am
look at this sweet theme
i’m not even using comic sans you guys that’s all serious i’m being here
so classy

why the hell should i care?
because jung was a brilliant mofo, that’s why

look at all that swag here
damn man that mustache

okay also maybe also because he was one of the most influential psychologists ever and his ideas are way fascinating
but man
look at that stache

so yeah jung’s ideas are way cool and totes influential and kind of trippy
but before we get to those a couple of things about the man himself because his life was mad interesting too

okay so as a kid jung’s mom was pretty much insane
hallucinations and seeing ghosts and depression and all that
so he pretty much became a weird kid
seeing ghosts and thinking he had two personalities and making himself faint to avoid school
(damn i wish i could make myself faint to avoid school)
and then there was that one time he carved a totem pole into a ruler
so yeah

anyway then he went on to work at a psychiatric hospital and then become bffs with freud and then break up with freud and have a mental breakdown but then got better and went on to travel the world and write about alchemy and ufos and talk to catholic priests and collaborate with the us against the nazis and found his own brand of pscyhology and then die
the end

okay but not really because i really have to mention the red book first
it’s one of my favorite tidbits of jungian history okay

the red book
okay so right after jung and freud had their break-up shit started going down
jung started going crazy
legit crazy

he started having visions and hallucinations and basically was on the verge of a mental breakdown
and for a guy who’d worked with a lot of schizophrenics, that was fucking terrifying
but instead of freaking out about it like most people would
(okay so he did kind of freak out, but only for a while)
he was ‘hey! great opportunity to explore my psyche! let’s record this!’

hence the red book
several hundred pages of art and calligraphy and trippiness
and it’s pretty much gorgeous
here, have some pictures for proof

so artsy
sometimes i cry at night because it’s so beautiful
wow look at all this white space
i am such a shitty graphic designer

is that a fucking kabblah tree

seriously i can’t tell
i’m pretty sure this is a mandala tho
oh jung
you and your plagiarism of myths
(jk jk ilu)

*dramatic drumroll/transition slide*
so as you can see jung had a lot of really weird ideas
one of which happened to be….

collective unconciousness, alchemy, and other trippy stuff
aaw yes the reason we’re all here
jung being a crazy mofo
in the most glorious way

*it’s the ciiiiircle of life*
the collective unconsciousness was one of main reasons jung broke from freud and it basically says that there’s a shared unconsciousness that all people have
and all our good stuff like archetypes arise from it
so yeah it’s kind of new age-y and kind of controversial
but interesting

(oh god what am i doing with my life)
*and it joins us allllll*

aw yesh archetypes
so for jung there’s a bunch of archetypes all in life
like, idk, the whole ‘wounded healer’ or the ‘wise old mentor’ or ‘the inner child’ and all the other things you can find on tv tropes
and they’re all manifestations of this inner collective unconsciousness
kind of like in hinduism
i see you plagiarizing again carl

but yeah archetypes totes exist
and there are literally an infinite number of them
and they’re pretty important but sometimes they result in complexes where we refuse to let go of an archetype
which can be bad, but it doesn’t mean complex are always bad
we just have to see people as more than archetypes

*life advice 101 from strangers on the internet*

yeah so we also have archetypes within ourselves too
and there’s a whole lot of them and i’m just going to do the shadow so here’s a handy chart of your psyche

so the shadow is basically our personality foil
and like a foil, a lot of times we’re kind of scared by it because shit here’s a person who literally stands for everything i’m against
but shadows aren’t completely bad either because sometimes we hide away parts of ourselves that we should express
like anger or pain or all that stuff that we should probably express, but we don’t
so, like, express yourself man. get angry. cry. don’t bottle it all up, because that’s unhealthy as hell
oh wow i really can’t stop with the life advice can i

but anyways, for guys, there’s an anima – a shadow corresponding to women – and for women, an animus – a shadow corresponding to men
and there are a bunch of stages for each one with fancy-names too
like, for men, it goes “eve,” “helen,” “mary” and “sophia”
each corresponding to how a guy views women and whatnot
but basically what jung says we should do is try to accept our shadows and integrate it into ourselves
except we can’t force this process, it has to happen naturally
so idk
basically, be content, young grasshopper

introversion, extroversion, and all that other mbti stuff
yeah so jung also did all that other stuff about personality subgroups, which got translated into mbti
how well/accurate you think mbti is varies, but it’s pretty fun to mess with and it gets people interested in jung in general so yeah
just don’t take them super-seriously because then they become kind of horoscopy and confining

but basically there are eight jungian functions, which are all extraverted or introverted ways of expressing four things
and technically, we have access to all eight of them, only four of them are in our shadow so we tend not to use them all that often
but yeah your mbti group depends on the order you use your main four
although mbti added a fourth letter when jung had just three, so ymmv on that
but yeah
mbti’s super-trendy and technically not part of jung, so i’m not going to cover super-duper much

so yeah that’s the basics
(actually not because jung also did a bunch of stuff about individualization and synchronicity and how self-discovery parallels alchemy and etc but it’s two thirty and i’m less familiar with that stuff so yeah)
so yeah his ideas might be kind of wacky at times, but they’re really influential and fascinating in general
i hope you feel educated and/or entertained

here is a picture of jung being wise and giving you actual quality life advice
We cannot change anything until we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses.
