FameRank: 8

"Carl Gustav Jung", often referred to as "C. G. Jung", was a Swiss Psychiatry/psychiatrist and Psychotherapy/psychotherapist who founded analytical psychology.

Jung proposed and developed the concepts of the collective unconscious, Jungian archetypes/archetypes, and extraversion and introversion. His work has been influential not only in psychiatry but also in philosophy, anthropology, archeology, literature, and religious studies. He was a prolific writer, though many of his works were not published until after his death.

The central concept of analytical psychology is Individuation#Carl Jung/individuation—the psychological process of integrating the opposites, including the conscious with the unconscious, while still maintaining their relative autonomy. Jung considered individuation to be the central process of human development.

Jung created some of the best known psychological concepts, including the Jungian archetypes/archetype, the collective unconscious, the Complex (psychology)/complex, and synchronicity. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), a popular Personality psychology/psychometric instrument, and the concepts of socionics were developed from Jung's theory of psychological types.
