Psychological ("personality") Types

Psychological ("personality") Types
Psychological ("personality") Types According to Jung's theory of Psychological Types we are all different in fundamental ways. One's ability to process different information is limited by their particular type. These types are sixteen. People can be either Extroverts or Introverts, depending on the direction of their activity ; Thinking, Feeling, Sensing, Intuitive, according to their own information pathways; Judging or Perceiving, depending on the method in which they process received information. Extroverts vs. Extroverts are directed towards the objective world whereas Introverts are directed towards the subjective world. Sensing vs. Sensing is an ability to deal with information on the basis of its physical qualities and its affection by other information. Thinking vs. Thinking is an ability to deal with information on the basis of its structure and its function. Perceiving vs. Perceiving types are motivated into activity by the changes in a situation.

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. The archetypes, on the other hand, have flourished in interpretations of myths. Campbell, Eliade and others have not exactly adapted the archetypes as such, although several of those scholars admit to their existence and importance, but they have used the idea of extracting symbolic elements from the myths, and comparing these across cultural borders. Myths do have lots of similarities, no matter what culture or time they come from, and these similarities can easily be described in a manner approaching that of the archetypes.

Your weird attraction to Prince Harry: a theory Chris Jackson / Getty Images Prince Harry approves of this important research. By Joan Raymond When it comes to a man’s hotness quotient, there are the usual shallow suspects. But let’s just blame evolution for a woman’s fondness for broad shoulders and a v-shaped torso. A Stick-On Window Device That Blocks And Filters Outside Noise Austrian industrial designer Rudolf Stefanich has created a concept device that is capable of filtering outside noise from entering your room. Called ‘Sono’, it transforms any window into an “active noise canceling system”, allowing users to eliminate and filter the sounds that pass through their windows. By turning a knob, the device filters out disruptive noises like car horns and construction works, but allows pleasant sounds like birds chirping or the sound of the wind through. “In our loud and busy world, a moment of silence has become a scarce and almost luxurious experience,” said Stefanich. “Sono lets you reclaim that silence for your home.” Click the video below to see how Sono works:

Emotionally}Vague: A research project about emotion, sensation and feeling. Q4: What colours do you associate with these emotions? Refer to numbered colour chart.

Good sleep, good learning, good life Foreword It is everyone's dream to wake up fresh, happy, and ready for action on a daily basis. Sadly, in the modern world, only a small minority lives that dream. Yet the dream is within reach for most healthy people given:

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. Though initially Jung followed the Freudian theory of unconscious as the psychic strata formed by repressed wishes, he later developed his own theory on the unconscious to include some new concepts. The most important of them is the archetype. Archetypes constitute the structure of the collective unconscious - they are psychic innate dispositions to experience and represent basic human behavior and situations. Thus mother-child relationship is governed by the mother archetype.

You can do it if you put your mind to it I’m sorry I haven’t posted much recently, but I’ve been very busy working on a new project. As long-time readers may know, as well as having written a couple of dozen books on computing and web development I also write about psychology and motivation, and more specifically Creative Visualization, in which I teach techniques for priming yourself to become more creative, have greater motivation and to set and achieve your goals in life (among many other things). I’ve written two books on the subject so far, Creative Visualization For Dummies, and Yes I Can!. The former is a comprehensive tutorial starting from first principles, while the latter takes a selection of 20 different aspects of life and provides techniques for working on each (it also made the UK WH Smiths Top 20 in 2012). And this exception has stubbornly bugged me for years, and steadfastly refused to budge even after the deepest and most highly imagined visualizations and affirmations.

The Real You – Alan Watts “When you’re ready to wake up, you’re going to wake up, and if you’re not ready you’re going to stay pretending that you’re just a ‘poor little me.’ And since you’re all here and engaged in this sort of inquiry and listening to this sort of lecture, I assume you’re all in the process of waking up. Or else you’re teasing yourselves with some kind of flirtation with waking up which you’re not serious about. But I assume that maybe you are not serious, but sincere – that you are ready to wake up. So then, when you’re in the way of waking up, and finding out who you really are, what you do is what the whole universe is doing at the place you call here and now. You are something that the whole universe is doing in the same way that a wave is something that the whole ocean is doing… The real you is not a puppet which life pushes around; the real, deep down you is the whole universe.” – Alan Watts
