Tone of article[edit]

This article seems to be a wikified version of an essay. I guess that would make it non-encyclopedic content. I'll mark it when I have time, obviously unless somebody else does it first. ---Bersl2 08:09, 8 May 2007 (UTC)


I thought the information added to this article was well done. The only think I would add is something about Jung in the very beginning where Freud and Rogers are first introduced. Also, if the the person unconscious and collective unconscious could be made subcategories under Jung, I think it would make more sense since they are directly related to his work. Also, the second paragraph under the collective unconscious need to be worded differently or clarified. I have a difficult time reading and understanding what is meant about the archetypes, and what they mean. Jpletzke (talk) 16:01, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

I'm Sasha, I'm a psychology student at Shenandoah University and I'm editing this Wikipedia page for an in class project. Here is just a little bit of information I've found and I will be expanding on and going further into.

The out-of-character selves we encounter from time to time is particularly in response to fatigue and stress.

Dominant Extraverted Sensing and Inferior Introverted Intuition are two major components to discovering what brings out a hidden personality. Someone who is Dominant Extraverted Sensing typically use their favorite perceiving function in the outside world, focusing it on people, things, and activities. Perhaps more than any other type, they experience sensory data from the environment purely and directly. Someone who is Introverted is typically quieter and more thoughtful when they are in the grip, and this may either precede or alternate with becoming more emotional and/or easily angered. The type of personality we have or the traits we associate with are important when our out-of-character selves surface.
