The value of Jung

Jung’s model of personality typology is most helpful when it is used not as a way to classify oneself or others, but rather in the way he originally thought of it, as a psychological compass. So, in any problematic situation, I can ask myself four questions:

1) What are the facts? (sensation)

2) Have I thought it through? (thinking)

3) What is it worth to me to pursue this? (feeling)

4) What are the possibilities? (intuition)

The answers aren’t always clear, but the questions keep me alert.
