Jung Love Curriculum

Our step-by-step guide to becoming a master of typology

     Typology is a rich, fascinating field with more to unpack than any of us individually could ever approach in our lifetimes.  At Jung Love, we strive to break it down to make it accessible and interesting for as many people as we can.  Below, you will find the curriculum we’ve designed to introduce you to the essential topics involved in the field.  It represents a lifetime work-in-progress, as well as a guide to help you navigate, fill in the holes in your knowledge, and seek out further information.

The curriculum will be regularly updated with links to articles describing the concepts as they become available.

⚡Fast Track Option: Typological theory can get very dense.  If you just want a good general overview without getting bogged down by extra details, look for the lightning bolt.

  1. Nicely done, this is a very comprehensive list! It’s impressive how much there is available to read here already, the site feels so young!

    1. Thank you so much! I think it will really help us to have a framework to “fill in” as we go, and hopefully it will help our readers too. 😀

  2. Brilliant. Wait till other sources get a load of this when all articles become available!
