Transcript of Carl Jung's collective unconscious & archetype
Defines four groups with each group containing three archetypes.

Each archetype in the four groups have the same motivating orientation but different source drives.

Carl Jung’s concept of the personal unconscious is similar to Freud’s Id.
The Personal Unconscious consists of memories and experiences that have been forgotten or suppressed.
It also contains memories considered painful or unimportant and dropped from conscious awareness.
It is unique and different for each individual.
It also holds part of our personality that never comes to consciousness.
An example would be a girl named Donna feels uncomfortable in the room it just gives her a bad feeling but she's not sure why. It might be because the walls reminds her of the same color as the room where her grandmother died. She doesn't consciously associate the room with her grandmother's death, but she has bad feelings because her personal unconscious is at work.

It contains all forms of unrepressed memories, thoughts, and feelings.
The consciousness carries out daily activities similar to Freud's consciousness.
But it can only hold a certain amount of information at a time.
The remaining information or experiences sinks into the unconscious.
An example would be when someone walks into a classroom their consciousness would take in the students in the room, what they are doing, and the furniture around.
Example types within the self set are driven to fulfill desires that surround what satisfies oneself.
Four main Archetypes:
Jung believed that the unconscious used dreams to reveal suppressed desires to the conscious.
Dreams are formed by the personal & collective unconscious.
The symbolism in dreams are specific to a person's life.

Greatest Fear: being bored
AKA: The fool, trickster, joker
2) The Sage
Core Desire: to find the truth
Goal: use analysis and intelligence to understand the world
Strategy: seek information, self reflection and understand thought processes
Greatest Fear: ignorance, being deceived

3) The Magician
Core Desire: understand the laws of the universe
Goal: make dreams come true
Strategy: develop vision and live by it
Greatest Fear: unintended negative consequences

The collective unconscious is expressed through archetype, which are universal thought-forms or mental images that influence an individual's feelings and actions.
An example would be to think of a newborn baby and how it is not a blank slate but already comes wired and ready to perceive certain patterns and symbols in the world.
Carl Jung was born in Switzerland in July 1875 . He was the only son of a protestant clergyman which is why he was expected to continue the family tradition. However, Jung instead choose to attend the University of Basel 1895-1900. He then became a psychiatrist and psychotherapist who founded analytical psychology. Jung proposed and developed many concepts and His work has been influential in psychiatry and in the study of religion, philosophy, archeology, anthropology, literature, and related fields. He was a prolific writer, many of whose works were not published until after his death.
his theories include:
• The concept of introversion and extroversion
• The concept of the complex.
• The concept of the collective unconscious, shared by all people. It includes the archetypes
most of Jung's theories and work are based upon a spiritual approach. His work on himself and his patients convinced him that life has a spiritual purpose beyond material goals. Our main task, he believed, is to discover and fulfill our deep innate potential.
4) The Ruler
Core Desire: control
Goal: create a sucessful, prosperous family or community
Strategy: Exercise power
Greatest Fear: chaos, being overthrown
AKA: The boss, leader, role model
This is why children fantasize so much, Jung believed: they have not experienced enough of reality to cancel out their mind's enjoyment of archetypal imagery.
3 Major Archetypes
Jung identified three major archetypes which he believed are part of the collective unconscious that are unlearned and function to organize how we experience certain things.
Composed of repressed ideas, weaknesses, desires, and shortcomings. This archetype is often described as the darker side of the psyche, representing wildness, chaos and the unknown.
: Anima is a feminine image in the male and the animus is a male image in the female psyche. The anima/animus represents the "true self" rather than the image we present to others and serves as the primary source of communication.
Derived from Latin word that means "mask". This is how we present ourselves to the world. It represents all of the different social masks that we wear among different groups and situations and acts to shield the ego from negative images.
Combination of the anima and animus is known as the syzygy which represents completion, unification and wholeness.
