Carl Jung was a Swiss psychiatrist and the founder of Analytical Psychology. He was an innovative thinker and he approached the unconscious through exploration of dreams, the study of art, mythology, religion, fairy tales, alchemy, and philosophy. Many mainstream psychological concepts originated with Jung including personality types, the collective unconscious, archetypes, and the shadow self.
Jung focused on the symbolic, archetypal imagery of dreams and envisioned the unconscious as a source of human creativity. His method aimed toward the expansion of consciousness through the cultivation of the relationship between the conscious and unconscious parts of the individual personality. This purposeful striving for balance between inner world and outer life is called the process of individuation.
In each of us is another whom we do not know. He speaks to us in dreams and tells us how differently he sees us from the way we see ourselves.
We are not what happened to us, we are what we wish to become.
