Carl Gustav Jung was a Swiss psychiatrist and psychologist who met and collaborated with Sigmund Freud in Vienna, but then developed his own theories, which he called “analytical psychology,” to distinguish them from Freud’s psychoanalysis or Alfred Adler’s individual psychology. Jung designed and developed the concepts of extroverted and introverted personality, archetypes, and the collective unconscious. He held chairs in Basel and Zurich.
