“Become such as you are, having learned what that is.” (Pindar, 500 BC)
We are about 7 billion people on this planet and luckily every one of us is different.
We’re all different yet we all exhibit some common preferences.
The question is: are those preferences random?
According to Carl Gustav Jung, the famous Swiss psychiatrist, the answer to this question is No. Our preferences are not random.
In his view, some of our behaviours are predictable; they can be explained, and even maybe predicted, by a set of specific personality types that we are born with.
Don’t we all know that intuitively?
Learning about these inbuilt preferences, that Jung theory says we all have, will help you understand your own behaviour, your strengths and your blind spots.
