Title: Jungian personality types and inner attitudes: A pilot comparative study
Authors: Bergin, Colleen
Keywords: Art Therapy
Issue Date: May-2000
Abstract: This comparative design study attempts to find a connection by examining and comparing certain Jungian personality types, in particular sensing and intuiting, as applied in the Myers- Briggs Type Indicator which is based on Carl Jung's psychological type theory, with aspects of movement known as inner attitudes. The study used five female first year Dance/Movement Therapy students, who were comfortable and familiar with movement and creating movement through the use of imagery. They were given the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, a self report, objective test used for personality assessment followed by a videotaped movement assessment using imagery that focuses on the observation of inner attitudes which are reflective of aspects of personality. The tapes were viewed and rated by three dance/movement therapists who were instructed to look for the predominant inner attitude seen in each movement phrase. The information received from the raters were then compared to the outcomes of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator as well as the preferred image selected by the participant. The results show that there possibly could be a link between Jungian personality types and aspects of movement as well as discovering a possible link between conscious and unconscious choices. This is seen in the participants conscious choice differing from their behavior reflected by unconscious mechanisms. The implications of this study provide further insight into the phenomenon known as personality.
