Archetype & Type – Kesstan Blandin & Yvonne Nelson-Reid

November 14, 2021 @ 9:00 am 10:00 am Australia/Sydney

C.G. Jung’s theories of archetype and psychological type are seminal works underlying the psychic structure of personality in individuals. In this session, an analysis of a large correlational study with the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) instrument and the Pearson-Marr Archetype Indicator (PMAI) assessment will be presented, analyzed, and discussed. We will attempt to weave theories (e.g., Jung, Hillman, Pearson, Beebe, Hunziker) with the empirical data to discover together how archetypes and psychological types complement, challenge, and deepen one another.
