Transcript of Carl Jung
Personal Unconscious: The personal unconscious is made up of two parts; one being a personal reservoir of experience unique to each individual, and secondly a part of the unconscious that is not the result of personal experience but is inherited. This portion of the unconscious he refers to as the "collective unconscious".
Collective Unconscious: The collective unconscious contains psychic material that lies below the threshold of consciousness and is an amalgamation of shared ideas that is universal across humanity. Jung linked the collective unconscious to be the presence of what cannot be explained by anything in the individual's own life, which therefore seems to be inherited.
Archetypes: Jung believed that archetypes exist in the collective unconscious as an inherited unconscious idea, patter of thought, collection of images inherited by members of the same group. Archetypes reveal themselves in mythical literature in images (e.g.: the great father or great mother) or in patterns of action (e.g.: disobedience and self-sacrifice).

Jung felt that
the archetypes we
idealize and base our
morality on start from
heroes. Either real or
fictional, they directly
influence our behavior.

Freud defined the unconscious as a collection of repressed material produced by the conscious mind. Jung divided the psyche into three parts: the conscious (the ego), the personal unconscious and the collective unconscious. The collective unconscious was a reason for he and Freud's split.
Jung argued that similar to the evolution of the human body that keeps traces of ancestral bodies, the human psyche carries all the previous history of human development.
Jung did not ideological agree with Freud's concept, the Oedipus Complex(1). This disagreement thus ending he and Freud's mutual collaboration.
