From the Back Cover:

"The self
is our life's goal,
for it is
the completest
expression of
that fateful
combination we
call individuality."
-Carl Jung

Like trees in a forest, we depend on processes to sustain our very being. It is easy to see the water on a leaf of a tree and be reminded of some of the tree's life-sustaining processes like evaporation and photosynthesis. Humans have more than physical needs of air, food and water. We have psychological and social needs. We have ways of processing information that keep us psychologically alive. We are not like the trees--planted firmly in the ground and at the mercy of the forces of nature and dependent on the cycles of rain for that which nurtures us. We have some conscious control over our life-sustaining processes--if only we understand them and rise to the challenge of using this understanding in our daily lives.

While there is consistency to our personality type pattern, it is also fluid. We are dynamic--adaptable and responsive to the needs of the moment. And we are constantly developing-- growing and evolving in relation to the demands placed on us. Understanding the dynamics of our personality can help us better express our own individuality, take charge of our learning and growth, and get ourselves out of the swamps and quicksands of interpersonal relationships and life's challenges.

Dynamics of Personality Type: Understanding and Applying Jung's Cognitive Processes takes you deeper on your journey of self-discovery. It explains how you access and gather information and how you evaluate that information. These are the two basic processes you use every minute of every day in every situation. They are your ways of "knowing" that sustain you. They are also the tools you have to help you step outside the limits of your inborn tendencies and the environmental forces that can unconsciously shape your behavior. This book requires your active participation to unlock the dynamics behind the pattern of your own individuality. Use it to help you achieve your life's goal--the complete expression of you.
