Personality type has always helped us appreciate our gifts and accept our blind-spots. Now “depth typology” reveals our undiscovered talents and deepest challenges as well. Depth Typology C. G. Jung, Isabel Myers, John Beebe, and The Guide Map to Becoming Who We Are describes the expanded framework and whole-psyche dynamics of Jungian analyst John Beebe’s state of the art type model. Not only does this book explain in detail what the model is and how it works, it describes the context as well—its theoretical foundations and how it fits with modern scientific knowledge and our evolving understanding of personality, as well as the current psycho-socio-political need for such an advancement in understanding ourselves. These new insights broaden the scope of psychological type and dramatically enhance its usefulness in a multitude of arenas. Type professionals, depth psychologists, and laypeople alike can use this powerful tool for maximizing individual potential, fostering better relationships, elevating teamwork, and defusing conflict. Depth typology is already inspiring innovations in a multitude of type applications and endeavors. It has initiated a new era in the exploration of personality and seems certain to continue inspiring new insights and innovative applications, due to the broader and deeper perspective it brings to the field. We now have a true whole-type model of personality, including for the first time:* An understanding of our cognitive modes of operating that is more vivid and accurate because it is based on the actual building blocks of personality, the eight function-attitudes. The functions and attitudes of type provide a theoretical framework for thinking and talking about personality, but shifting the focus to the function-attitudes allows us to use a framework that describes the live, dynamic mental processes that are actually at work.* A framework that encompasses both the go-to conscious gifts and the unconscious challenges of each personality type. Rather than limiting type to the ego-side of personality, the model encompasses, for the first time, the whole personality, including even the collective unconscious.* The energy factor that is responsible for our innate patterns of motivation and emotional baggage. Formerly a purely cognitive model, this expanded view of psychological type now also encompasses the emotion-related energies that drive us. These insights enable anyone to better navigate their unique path of personal growth and understand and manage their deepest psychological challenges. Understanding how all of the mental processes of type and their associated emotional energies influence our perceptions, interactions, and choices can enable us to live happier and more successful and fulfilling lives. Teachers, counselors, consultants, and trainers who already use personality type in their work will be able to verify “reported type” more quickly and reliably, to understand and address deeper and more resistant challenges, and provide more effective and lasting support for their clients. Clinical psychologists and analysts will find that Jung’s framework for understanding normal consciousness can now be applied to the unconscious as well, providing a new and powerful tool for dream interpretation and enabling professionals to flex more effectively to relate and communicate with patients.
