Often, our first introduction to Jung’s psychology is via his typological model.
The terms ‘Extrovert’ and ‘Introvert’ are now well established in our modern-day consciousness, with the concepts the ‘Thinking’ and ‘Feeling’, as well as ‘Sensate’ and ‘Intuitive’ functions not far behind.
Upon first getting to know someone, an increasingly common query is ‘What type are you?’ Depending upon our 'type', we answer INFP, ENTJ, ISFJ, etc.
While it is good to have an awareness of what type we are, it is even more important to have an appreciation of what type we are not.
What we are not, describes our shadow – a set of characteristics that we may yet develop and will hamper our path through life until they are acknowledged.
In this session, we will look at the relative strengths of the various psychological functions and their complementary opposite.
