Carl Jung: The way we are

We think we know ourselves, but we don't. We replace - in most of us - our individual life (which is the only real life) with what our society wants us to be and we are deprived of moral decisions.

The biggest challenge is how to differentiate ourselves from the society doctrine. But when we do this, we become the slaves of our own fictions, Because we think we know ourselves, but we don't.

He said this in 1950, Too European for America? The Meyer Briggs test originates from Carl Jung teachings. We take the tests and discover what we like to be. We are surprised how well the test works. Because we do not know ourselves and we think we do.
