Is any one here into dream analysis based on a Jungian/archtype school? What do you think of my thoughts on dream analysis?
I have very vivid dreams and some times I do Jungian [influenced] dream analysis on them based on archetypes.
Generally I used what I think of as the standard archtypes. Note: I am female, for males the gender would be reversed.
mother = my inner parent, the the supportive part of me
husband, brother = my "male" side
my daughter, or a young child = my inner child
Recently I came accross Beebe's chart where archtypes are paired up for different functions.
secondary=good parent (same gender)
inferior=anima/animus (males "female" side, females "male" side)
5th = opposing personality
6th = witch
7th = trickster
8th = demon
So if I were to base dream analysis on this, based on my type it would be:
The villians in my dreams might correspond to one of my shadow function. Also based on what little I know of Beebe, 5th - 8th are negative versions of the trait that is 4 higher. So for example if the mother in the dream was not a "good parent" and mean or disaproving, that means it is representing my 6th trait, Ti, not my second trait, Te.
