The paper traces the roots of Carl Jung's interest in psychology, from his studies in science to his personal feelings of connecting to something deeper within the human mind through the analysis of dreams. This self-proclaimed inner wisdom helped to define his personality theory. The writer looks into this theory and how Jung applied it to his patients.

From the Paper:

"Jung graduated in 1902 with a broad background in biology, zoology, paleontology and archaeology and began his work in "associations" in which a patients response to stimulus words signified what Jung called "complexes" one of his terms that are still in use today. At this time, Jung discovered the works of his mentor, Sigmund Freud. Despite the value Jung saw in Freud's work, he was not able to accept Freud's idea that repression is caused by sexual trauma. Jung published Symbols of Transformation in 1912, which challenged some of Freud's basic ideas and precluded his break with Freud. Jung began developing his theories, using his vast knowledge of mythology and history, his encounters with the diverse cultures of New Mexico, India, and Kenya, and his memories of the dreams and fantasies of his childhood (Fadiman and Frager, p. 56)."
