Jung verses Freud: Sexuality Isn’t Everything

with 2 comments

Jung with his analytical psychology, rejected Freud’s emphasis on sexuality, introduced the concept of the collective unconscious with its archetypes, and coined the terms introvert and extrovert.

Carl Gustav Jung

Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung began his studies of human motivation in the early 1900s and created the school of psychoanalysis known as analytical psychology. A contemporary of Austrian psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud, Jung at first collaborated closely with Freud but eventually moved on to pursue his own theories, including the exploration of personality types. According to Jung, there are two basic personality types, extroverted and introverted, which alternate equally in the completely normal individual. Jung also believed that the unconscious mind is formed by the personal unconscious (the repressed feelings and thoughts developed during an individual’s life) and the collective unconscious (those feelings, thoughts, and memories shared by all humanity).



Analytic psychology

The term for Jung’s approach to psychoanalytic theory. 

Collective unconscious 

A set of inherited mental structures that Jung thought were universal and the result of accumulated human experiences across time. 


Jung’s term for the inherited mental elements in the collective unconscious.


Individuals who prefer to love with their own thoughts and avoid social interactions. 


Individuals who are highly interested in other people and the social world around them

  1. for Jung, what move people is also the quest for spirituality. Spirituality is as strong as Sexual impulses….
    when he mention that to her “mentor” , Freud didn’t like it…among other differences about Arquetypes and Collective Unconscious.
    I am actually a student of Arquetypal Psychology , studying James Hillman, who is a follower of Jung and discoverer of Arquetypal
    Psychology.= Images talk, lets learn to listen to them, to be with them and not reducing them quickly to a reductive interpretation.
    Very good blog of yours!

  2. I think it kinda make sense when Jung had a different mindset with Freud, Jung is an INTJ himself, and he thinks about the big picture while Freud sees almost everything with the sexual perception
