Personality Theorist 2 Personality Theorists Quote An understanding heart is everything in a teacher, and cannot be esteemed highly enough. One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feeling. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child. Carl Jung Background Carl Gustav Jung was born July 26, 1875, in the small Swiss village of Kessewil. His father was Paul Jung, a country parson, and his mother was Emilie Preiswerk Jung. Jung was a long time admirer of Freud; they met in Vienna in 1907. Jung had not completely agreed with Freud’s theory. They remained good friends until Jung felt insulted after a visit with Freud in America, when Freud showed some resistance to Jung’s efforts of analyzing his dreams. World War I was a painful period of self- examination for Jung. However, it was the beginning of one of the most interesting periods for personal psychology. After the war, Jung traveled widely, visiting, for example, tribal people in Africa, America, and India. Zurich. Jung dreamt about the dead, the land of the dead, and the rising of the dead. These dreams represented the unconscious itself , but a new collective unconscious of humanity itself, an unconscious that could contain all the dead, not just our personal ghosts. Jung started to see mentally ill as people who are haunted by ghosts, during a time when it was not popular to believe in them. If we could only recapture our mythologies, we would understand these ghosts, become comfortable with the dead, and heal our mental illnesses. (George Boeree. 1997)
