Sociotype - Jung's Psychological Types

Jung's Psychological Types

Jung's model for 2 types: extraverted intuitive-thinking (ILE) and introverted feeling-sensory (ESI)
Function ILE ESI
Dominant Extraverted intuition Introverted feeling
Auxiliary Introverted thinking Extraverted sensation
Tertiary Extroverted feeling Introverted intuition
Inferior Introverted sensation Extraverted thinking

Carl Jung describes four psychological functions that are capable of becoming conscious, but to differing degrees in specific individuals:

  • Sensation - all perceptions by means of the sense organs
  • Intuition - perception by way of the unconscious, or perception of unconscious events
  • Thinking (in socionics, logic) - interpretation of information based on whether it is correct or incorrect
  • Feeling (in socionics, ethics) - interpretation of information based on its ethical aspects

In addition to these four types, Jung defines a polarity between introverted and extraverted personalities. This distinction is based on how people invest energy rather into the inner, subjective, psychical world (usually called Seele, soul, by Jung) or instead the outer, objective, physical world (including one's body).

By Jung's rules 16 psychological types exist. But in his book "Psychological Types" he described in detail only 8 types, distinguished by the eight possible dominant functions.

Famous quotes containing the words types and/or jung:

    Science is intimately integrated with the whole social structure and cultural tradition. They mutually support one other—only in certain types of society can science flourish, and conversely without a continuous and healthy development and application of science such a society cannot function properly.
    Talcott Parsons (1902–1979)

    Like Freud, Jung believes that the human mind contains archaic remnants, residues of the long history and evolution of mankind. In the unconscious, primordial “universally human images” lie dormant. Those primordial images are the most ancient, universal and “deep” thoughts of mankind. Since they embody feelings as much as thought, they are properly “thought feelings.” Where Freud postulates a mass psyche, Jung postulates a collective psyche.
