Psychological Types
September 23, 2014
-2 types w/ 4 functions
-attitudes: the one you show to the world, then one that’s equally powerful in the unconscious
extraversion: turned outward
introversion: turned toward the self
-functions: making sense of the world
sensing (irrational): don’t process info, no thinking/judgment, just notice it
thinking (rational): try to understand how things work, think things through
feeling (rational): emotional reaction (like or dislike)
intuiting (irrational): looks at purpose of objects and based on hunches/gut feelings
= 8 different types of people
-Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (used for hiring purposes a lot)
The Eight Types
1.ET: rational logical, thinking about properties of the world (good scientists), rule driven
-don’t share feelings; driven by rational processing and deny typical pleasure
2.EF: driven by feelings, social butterflies (more women than men)
-intense and very sociable, changing w/ demands of a situation
3.ES: very much so in men; pleasure seeker (art, good, appearance), bored of things that don’t change
4.EI: drifter, impulsive (retail, politician)
-many projects on the go but nothing seems to get done (women more)
5.IT: philosopher/egghead, but are cold, aloof, inconsiderate w/ other people
6.IF: silent, quiet, don’t share feelings a lot
-hard to understand but have intense relationships (many women)
-excel well as poets and in religion
7.IS: calm, artistic, passive
-react to outside stimuli (bizarre w/ their art); seeing the world in a different way
8.II: mad genius, mystic, prophet, dreamer etc.
-visionary, but very hard to understand
perhaps Jung belonged here?
What Jung Helped With (from the first questions from class #1):
-“health personality” definition
-defining “self”
-“unhealthy personality” definition
Critical Evaluation of Jung
-comprehensive: VERY (almost as strong as Freud’s)
- precision/testability: fails
-parsimony: too many concepts
-empirical validity: the concepts are way too hard to test
-heuristic value: considerable (influenced other fields and is relevant to history/arch/anthro/religion/marriage)
-applied value: considerable (MB Types)
