Sex and life instincts
Repressed ideas, weaknesses, desires, shortcomings

Aspects of yourself you don’t like are reflected onto other people
True self, rather than image projected onto others
Inner woman/man

If it was too powerful or passive then prone to psychological problems
Syzygy: combination of anima and animus
Unification, wholeness
Politically incorrect stereotyping
How we present ourselves to the world
“Persona” Latin

Typological Theory
• Refers to decision making
• Feeling:
make decisions on how they affect people personally
• Thinking:
makes decisions based on impersonal inputs and effects, objectively

3 pairs created by Jung, fourth pair added by Myers-Briggs
• Where one places the efforts in the world

focus on external world, get along well with people

focus on the world inside their head, need time alone to recharge, find more interesting dealing with imagination, and ideas.
• How one takes in information (senses or patterns)

concrete facts, looks at immediate picture
• Intuitive:
focuses more on abstraction, “sees the forest for the trees”, interpret and add information

• How one lives and interacts with the world around you
• Perceiving:
flexible, don’t make many plans, more spontaneous
• Judging:
structured, like to have a calendar/schedule, prefer more order

Feeling vs. Thinking
Intuitive vs. Sensing
Introvertion vs. Extroversion
Perceiving vs. Judging
