How Personal Issues Arise - A Jungian View
Childhood issues are mainly due to parenting. Issues in young adulthood arise from not escaping childhood. Middle age issues arise from not escaping young adulthood. Life is a series of stages with particular challenges in each one.
Three Jungian Concepts about the Mind
- Personas are systems of adaptation to the external world
- Introversion is a conscious internal world interest and unconscious external world interest
- Extraversion is a conscious external world interest and unconscious internal world interest
