Analytical Psychology

Carl Jung

Type of psychology: Personality

Field of study: Psychodynamic and neoanalytic models

Analytical psychology is one of the most complex theories of personality. It attempts to improve on SigmundFreud's work by deemphasizing sexual instincts and the abnormal side of human nature. Three of its more significant contributions are the notions of psychological types, the concept of the collective unconscious, and the depiction of the unconscious self as the most critical structure within the psyche.
