Event Description


Jung’s theory of psychological types, published in English in 1923, was based on his research as a young psychiatrist in Zürich. Over several years, he discovered universal, innate functions that all people draw on when they take in information and make decisions.

He identified several personality types based on 3 criteria: extraversion-introversion, sensation-intuition, and thinking-feeling. For example, he found that people either prefer sensation or intuition functions when they take in information, and they prefer either thinking or feeling functions when they make decisions.

Also, individuals tend to be energized in 1 of 2 ways: extraversion (acting in the outer world) or (reflecting in the inner world).  Later Isabel Briggs Meyer, a researcher and practitioner of Jung’s theory, added a 4th criterion of judging-perceiving. 

Understanding one’s innate preferences for experiencing life and making decisions is profoundly helpful in building self-acceptance, creating successful relationships and avoiding unnecessary conflicts.

This class will help participants identify their unique gifts and mental patterns, as well as embrace the changes that the individuation journey requires of all of us as we age. Also provided will be insights about how to enjoy personality differences for a fuller experience of life

Course Objectives

-Distinguish Jung’s 8 functions and how innate personality preferences inform conscious attitudes and the way people engage in the world

-Learn how the functions unconsciously affect one’s life and relationships

-Speak about and draw upon your Type preferences to support your own personal development

-Discover how to develop your weaker functions as part of aging and the individuation process

-Use knowledge of different types to enhance relationships and appreciate differences in others

Dates: 6 Thursdays, Feb 2 thru Mar 9

Hi Afton. The video is on YouTube, so you can download if you have their "Red" service that allows downloads--or there are some various softwares that you can buy that enables that process as well. 

Otherwise, anyway--we intend to leave it in the Alliance video library indefinitely, so you should be able to access it anytime.

You WILL be able to download the videos for the weekly classes in the paid course, and Dorene has just posted the one from yesterday in the Group Forum:
