Personality Type in Depth: The Next Issue Will Be Available Soon  

The fragmentation of the psyche is a theme of the January issue of Personality Type in Depth (coming out on January 5th).  Articles consider type bias in western civilization and Hamlet's typological complexes in the Shakespeare tragedy.  Questions raised include the following:

  • Is it possible to view civilizations through the lens of type?
  • Was Shakespeare ultimately cautioning us about the potentially disastrous effects of unbridling the Trickster in psyche or society?
  • Do you agree with Jungian Analyst John Giannini (and others) that ESTJ is the "dominant typology of western culture?"
