Having said that... I'm curious as to how you interpret this sort of thing?
Now... This isn't anything brand new. While reading some of the older threads on this forum. It's been mentioned before. Given that he has already made the distinction between extroverted intuition and introverted intuition. His words here can't really be confused as such surely?“It is more interesting and relevant to ask how Jung identified himself on his own typology.
I have direct evidence on this point. I had a long talk with Jung at his home in Kusnacht on the morning of December 18th, 1959. I was aged 21, a Fellow of the Bollingen Foundation, and had been corresponding with Jung since 1957.
I said, innocently, and in passing, “I must be what you call a thinking type.” He immediately broke in and said. “No you are an introverted intuitive type” and then he added, “just like me”. This meant, of course, that I could read Jung knowing that his prejudice coincided with mine.”
I have given my own views already. You however believe they come from Ne hence I just agreed to disagree.Why wont you give even one reason why you think he is Ni dom?
Honestly, I don't see much point in arguing whether his ideas were derived from self-reflection or generated from observations from his environment. Like I said, it's not a debate of Ni or Ne. Those sort of arguments have existed for so long even on INFPg, and given that it's still confused today, it's the sort of thing that goes on forever.
