Carl G. Jung
Carl Gustav Jung
86 years later in 1961. He studied at Basel from 1895-1900 and then at Z?rich
where he received his M.D. in 1902. He worked at the University Psychiatric
Clinic there in Z?rich and afterwards worked for Eugen Bleuler at the Burgholzli
theoretical beliefs had a lot in common. At the age of 36 he became the
Nazi-influenced organization but resigned after the Nazis began forcing their
ideology on the members of the association.
One of the biggest influences on the hypothesis’s he made throughout his career
the first to bring up the now popular types of personality, extrovert and
was torn between the two each always pulling him in their direction. He
developed the concepts of extroversion and introversion for his studies of
causally unrelated events having identical or similar meaning.
Jung was the first to introduce extrovert and introvert personalities to the world
of psychology. Most people are a combination of the two with one seemingly to
be somewhat more visible to observers than the other. An extroverted
personality centers most of their energies upon the surrounding world and
psychic energism. He concluded that there were two different dimensions in the
unconscious: the personal and the ideals of a collective unconscious. “To Jung,
the most important and lifelong task imposed upon any person is fulfillment
unconscious, which makes a person one and whole.”3
