( 1875–1961), Swiss psychologist; full name Carl Gustav Jung.

Jung originated the concept of introvert and extrovert personality, and of the four psychological functions of sensation, intuition, thinking, and feeling. He collaborated with Sigmund Freud in developing the psychoanalytic theory of personality, but later disassociated himself from Freud’s preoccupation with sexuality as the determinant of personality, preferring to emphasize a mystical or religious factor in the unconscious
