    • Jung's structure of personality
      • Psyche: total personality, harbours conflict but directed towards harmony
      • Self-realisation: stated aim of human development
      • Collective unconscious: beneath personal ucs, an innate universal human reservoir
      • Archetypes: universal themes and symbols in collective ucs, use to face uncertain and inexplicable experience
