Carl Gustav Jung, the father of analytical psychology was one of the most influential psychologists of all time.
Throughout his life, Jung formulated numerous groundbreaking psychological concepts that have left an indelible mark on the field.
Among these are synchronicity, archetypal phenomena, the collective unconscious, psychological complexes, the personality traits of extraversion and introversion, and the process of individuation.
