Quotes on Carl Gustav Jung – INFJ

Jung: “As a child I felt myself to be alone, and I am still, because I know things and must hint at things which others apparently know nothing of, and for the most part do not want to know.”

Jung: “The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.”

Jung: “Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.”

Jung: “There is no coming to consciousness without pain.”

Jung: “As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light of meaning in the darkness of mere being.”

Jung: “There is no such thing as a pure introvert or extrovert. Such a person would be in the lunatic asylum.”

Jung: “Show me a sane man and I will cure him for you.”

Jung: “I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.”

Jung: “The bigger the crowd, the more negligible the individual.”

“The Red Book – Liber Novus” by C.G. Jung

One of the most influential unpublished work in the history of psychology: “The Red Book”. When Carl Jung initiated on an extended self-exploration -his “confrontation with the unconscious”-, the heart of it was The Red Book, a large and illuminated volume he created between 1914 and 1930.

Jung developed his principle theories—of the archetypes, the collective unconscious, and the process of individuation—that completely transformed psychotherapy from a practice concerned with treatment of the sick, into a means for higher development of the personality.

“Psychological Types” by C.G. Jung

“This work sprang originally from my need to define the ways in which my outlook differed from Freud’s and Adler’s. In attempting to answer this question, I came across the problem of types; for it is one’s psychological type which from the outset determines and limits a person’s judgment. My book, therefore, was an effort to deal with the relationship of the individual to the world, to people and things. It discussed the various aspects of consciousness, the various attitudes the conscious mind might take toward the world, and thus constitutes a psychology of consciousness regarded from what might be called a clinical angle.” -C.G. Jung
