We will examine some of the psychological ideas related to Carl Jung’s dynamic model of the human psyche. Special attention will be paid to the place type plays in the current scholarly landscape. By critically examining different perspectives on the psyche, the soul, and the self we will attempt a fresh exploration of what type is with an aim to break free of habitual and ingrained assumptions, beliefs and dogmas.
In addition to examining questions like “what is type?”, “what is the role of the unconscious?” and “what is attitude?” we will explore the experience of pursuing a PhD in Jungian psychology. You may wonder how receptive Jungian and Archetypal psychology is to Type notions. The answer is a mixed bag. Finally we’ll touch upon some intriguing and controversial ideas about the difference between classification into categories and a structural functional model of the human psyche – moving from the typical to the unique.
David Pool has a Bachelors degree in Psychology and multiple type certifications. He is enrolled in the Depth, Jungian and Archetypal studies doctoral program at Pacifica Graduate Institute in Carpenteria California. This viewpoint into Jungian studies, the Type community, and mainstream academia grounds David’s viewpoint in three separate disciplines. David’s thesis is that an underlying psyche stands at the center of these three streams, his mission is to unite the different approaches while exercising a critical analytical approach.
