Founder of Analytical Psychology
Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961), son of a Protestant clergyman, was a Swiss psychiatrist. At a very early age, Jung began a quest to understand human behavior, beginning with his parents and teachers. Sigmund Freud was a great influence in his life. Initially their interests were similar but Jung took a different route and founded analytical psychology, which studies the motivations underlying human behavior. Jung’s psychological types and other theories later inspired others (including Isabel Briggs Myers & Katharine Cook Briggs) who have continued along the path he created.
“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to a better understanding
of ourselves.” – Carl Jung
