Psychoanalysis of MYTH - Applying Jung Jung's theories have certainly been applied to the study of myth - abundantly so. But not in their entirety. The collective unconscious and the process toward self-realization are psychoanalytical components with little meaning to historians of religion, and dreadfully difficult to work with when examining mythological material. Maslow's hierarchy of needs Maslow's hierarchy of needs, represented as a pyramid with the more basic needs at the bottom Maslow's hierarchy of needs is a theory in psychology proposed by Abraham Maslow in his 1943 paper "A Theory of Human Motivation" in Psychological Review. Maslow subsequently extended the idea to include his observations of humans' innate curiosity. His theories parallel many other theories of human developmental psychology, some of which focus on describing the stages of growth in humans. Maslow used the terms "physiological", "safety", "belongingness" and "love", "esteem", "self-actualization", and "self-transcendence" to describe the pattern that human motivations generally move through. Maslow's theory was fully expressed in his 1954 book Motivation and Personality. The hierarchy remains a very popular framework in sociology research, management training and secondary and higher psychology instruction. Hierarchy
The Top 10 Psychology Studies of 2010 The end of 2010 fast approaches, and I'm thrilled to have been asked by the editors of Psychology Today to write about the Top 10 psychology studies of the year. I've focused on studies that I personally feel stand out, not only as examples of great science, but even more importantly, as examples of how the science of psychology can improve our lives. Each study has a clear "take home" message, offering the reader an insight or a simple strategy they can use to reach their goals , strengthen their relationships, make better decisions, or become happier. If you extract the wisdom from these ten studies and apply them in your own life, 2011 just might be a very good year. 1) How to Break Bad Habits If you are trying to stop smoking , swearing, or chewing your nails, you have probably tried the strategy of distracting yourself - taking your mind off whatever it is you are trying not to do - to break the habit.
Carl Jung - Collective Unconscious Concept of Collective Unconscious at Jung Jung concept of collective unconscious is based on his experiences with schizophrenic persons since he worked in the Burgholzli psychiatric hospital.

The Secret Language of Symbols A Guide to The Structure of Spiritual Emblems There is a secret language we all recognize, but few are fluent in- the language of symbols. Symbols surround us in myriad forms and form an inextricable part of our daily lives, yet unlike our spoken languages, schooling in symbolism is left to the individual initiative. Personality Subtypes Summary The following is a series of figures that summarize the several subtypes of each of the personalities. It is Millon's view that there are few pure variants of any personality prototype. Rather, most persons evidence a mixed picture, that is, a personality that tends to blend a major variant with one or more subsidiary or secondary variants. Thus, as can be seen below, where there is a box listing several Schizoid subtypes, the reader will note four varieties, the affectless schizoid subtype, the remote, the languid and the depersonalized. The text for the affectless subtype indicates that the secondary or subsidiary personality quality is that of the compulsive prototype. What this means is that the schizoid personality demonstrates major features of the schizoid prototype, but also some features of the compulsive prototype.
The Heroes of Myth and Folklore: Part One – Defining a Hero Herakles battling the Hydra There is a special genre of tales in the texts of Hellenic mythology that recounts the deeds of extraordinary men and women such as Herakles, Perseus, Jason and Medeia to name but a few. These larger-than-life people are called the Heroes. Their stories derive from the most ancient form of the oral tradition and have evolved through the ages into the symbolic and historical mythology of mortals who were granted immortality through their destinies and the homage and remembrance of their descendants. To study the heroes is both an historical and symbolic journey that explores how the world of the immortal Gods interacts with the world of mortal men and women. The heroic tales speak not only of the history of mankind upon the earth but also explores the very nature of humanity itself.
Suicide rates are highest for men in their 50s and we're not sure why - Health Men take their own lives at about four times the rate women do, a number the Movember Foundation highlights this month in its campaign around men's mental health. In Canada and the U.S., the highest suicide rates are among men in their 50s (except for men over 75 in the U.S.). But we're not sure why. There's rarely just one factor that explains an individual suicide, and that's likely so for suicide rates. Part of the explanation for the high rate among men in their 50s includes the reasons men generally have a much higher suicide rate than women.
