Want to know your personality type?
C.G. Jung introduced his typological theory in his seminal work Psychological Types which was first published in German in 1921. Since then, various organizations have developed psychometric systems – like the MBTI – to help people evaluate their typological preferences and apply it in their own lives.
The contribution of these instruments to the body of knowledge on typology and the popularity of Jung’s work has been enormous. At the same time, the 21st century requires a fresh look at the principles Jung discovered.
Jung’s typology refers to the polarities of Extroversion and Introversion, Thinking and Feeling, and Intuition and Sensation. These are seen as the functions of Consciousness. But it is integration with the unconscious that Jung believes creates wholeness.
John van der Steur is interested in helping people achieve what Jung calls Individuation – the process of developing consciousness by accessing the unconscious. According to Jung, it is only from the tension of opposites that we grow. Based on this premise, John has expanded the Jungian notion of Typology and the Shadow to grow his work and to show how the four personality functions as well as every polarity within those functions has a unique purpose.
This beginner-level course is intended to aid you in your journey of self-discovery and personal effectiveness. It can help you discover who you are, what your strengths and limitations are, and how you want to apply them.
It is vital for our personal growth and effectiveness to know our personality type. When we are aware of our personality type, our preferences, our strengths and our limitations, it can help us find our purpose and chart the course for our lives. Naturally, our personality also affects the way we operate in relationship with others at home and at work. In this course John van der Steur will demonstrate the use of Jung’s theory of typology on a daily basis.
