This is the 2nd of four courses on the Myers-Briggs / Jungian psychological types.
We look to the famous psychiatrist, Dr. Carl Jung, and his original approach to personality now called “type dynamics” and “type development”. People have found his ideas illuminating and helpful for over a century now.
What’s your “operating system”? Dr. Jung described various psychological functions: ways we sense, intuit, think and feel. Thus, a type is not a cluster of behavioral traits. Type is a pattern of functioning. We can talk about this pattern as a “stack”—what is dominant, auxiliary, tertiary, and inferior. And there is both a radiant and shadow side to each.
In this course, you will explore all 8 of the Jungian functions, where they sit in your stack, and how you express them such as basic versus advanced use. All along the way, you will find a lot of material for exploration and skill building—build on your strengths and cover for blindspots. After all, personality is about development.
The course has three core parts: 1) background and overview, 2) in-depth discussion of the 8 Jungian functions, and 3) the “stack”, “health meter”, and a detailed skill-building guide.
Like the other courses in this series, you get 30 years of expertise plus reflections by other professional coaches and consultants. The course includes materials used in many workshops and definitions based on research studies and over 17 years of neuro-imaging.

Who this course is for:
- People who want to build their life skills and develop themselves.
- Anyone who wants to understand themselves and others in a deep way.
- Those interested in Dr. Carl Jung’s original framework of psychological functions.
- Students of “type” who want to cut through confusing Internet clutter to get pro material.
- People who are uncertain about their best-fit type (e.g. torn between two types).
- Coaches, consultants and similar persons who want to use type in a deeper way, such as skills building and shadow work.
- Those who are willing to look at the extreme and shadow sides of their personality.
