Jung’s Compass of Psychological Types links the tangible frameworks of typology to the intangible networks of depth psychology; reviews the “great divide” in consciousness and the two “cross-over” types oriented to both sides; presents Jung’s types as iconic actors on a psychic stage; analyzes compatibilities and oppositions of the types using five comparative categories; develops compass headings of compatible types useful for navigating life experience; distinguishes between ego modes and personality; links the spiraling union of ego and shadow types to “individuation”—becoming uniquely whole. Stories, examples, and biographical sketches help to make Jung’s original eight psychological types more memorable and understandable. The book was written for professionals attentive to personal development, e.g. personal and executive coaches, consultants, counselors, human resource executives, analysts, therapists, psychologists.Reseña del editor:
Jung’s psychological types could be thought of as a compass useful for navigating the “middle way” to a vital and uniquely differentiated life. For Aristotle, the middle way was the golden mean, the way between extremes to happiness, “the best, noblest, and most pleasant thing in the world.” Buddha, the “awakened one,” found the middle way that leads to broadened consciousness, emboldened compassion, and renewed reverence for life. Lao Tse’s middle way —Tao—finds harmony in the complementary opposites yin yang. For Confucius, the middle way included a balance of personal growth and communal responsibility. For Jung, the middle way unites opposites, creates wholeness, and gives birth to unique personality.
