Caitlin Dekker Psych 341 Sec. 1 Jung Study Guide 1. What aspects of Jung’s life and personality may have led to his theoretical ideas? -Jung’s father was a pastor so he spent much of his life searching for answers about religion and mythology. His childhood was very lonely as his only sister was 9 years younger than he, so he often played by himself which may have led to his ideas on maturity being in terms of balance within the self rather than interpersonal relations. He also suffered from fainting spells as a child and missed school frequently. However, once he overheard his father asking how he would make a living, his fainting stopped which shows his belief in the healing power of the psyche. 2. What does Jung mean by “psyche”? -Psyche means total personality or all psychological processes, thoughts, feelings, sensations wishes. It deals with both conscious and unconscious processes. 3. How is Jung’s concept of “libido” different from Freud’s? -Freud used the term libido as the motivating force of sexual drive whereas Jung used the term to refer to undifferentiated life energy or an appetite that may refer to sexuality and other hungers. 4. How is Jung’s concept of “ego” different from Freud’s? -For Freud, the ego is the executer of personality and largely unconscious or beyond conscious control. For Jung, the ego is one’s conscious mind and the part of the psyche that selects perceptions, thoughts, feelings, and memories that may enter consciousness. Through the ego, we develop stability, our identity, but it is not the true center of personality. 5. What is the personal unconscious? -The personal unconscious is the perceptions, thoughts, feelings, and memories that have been put aside, but may be retrieved easily. It also includes experiences that have been repressed or forgotten. (Consciousness can only hold a few items at a time.) Experiences in the personal conscious are grouped into clusters or complexes
