      Assimilating your inferior functions

      For all you psychological type enthusiasts, here's a quote from the guy (C.G. Jung) who put together this theory.

      "Continual conscious realization of unconscious fantasies [i.e. using 'active imagination' to explore your inner reality], together with active participation in the fantastic events, has, as I have witnessed in a very large number of cases, the effect firstly of extending the conscious horizon by the inclusion of numerous unconscious contents; secondly of gradually diminishing the dominant influence of the unconscious; and thirdly of bringing about a change of personality.

      This change of personality is naturally not an alteration of the original hereditary disposition, but rather a transformation of the general attitude. Those sharp cleavages and antagonisms between conscious and unconscious, such as we see so clearly in the endless conflicts of neurotic natures, nearly always rest on a noticeable one-sidedness of the conscious attitude, which gives absolute precedence to one or two functions, while the others are unjustly thrust into the background. Conscious realization and experience of fantasies assimilates the unconscious inferior functions to the conscious mind - a process which is naturally not without far-reaching effects on the conscious attitude."

      - paragraphs 358-359, 'The relations between the ego and the unconscious', in [the book] "Two Essays on Analytical Psychology", Carl G. Jung (chapter excerpted in the book "Jung on Active Imagination" by Joan Chodorow)
