Typosynthesis en


Typosynthesis is a branch of holistic psychology, which helps a person to develop, become more effective and happier, using knowledge of his psychological type. 

Typosynthesis is based on a combination of Jung's Typology and Enneagram. More information here >>>

On the one hand, Typosynthesis combines (interconnects) different typologies (Jung's Typology, Enneagram, Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and Socionics) and on the other hand it combines Typology with Psychology and Spirituality.

In 1921, Swiss psychologist Carl Jung published the most famous of his books "Psychological Types", which summarizes the results of his 20 years of practical psychological activity and introduces the idea that each person has a psychological type.

Everyone has a most developed psychic function, which defines his habitual reactions and, accordingly, behavior:

«Just as a lion strikes down his enemy or his prey with his fore-paw, in which his strength resides, and not with his tail like the crocodile, so our habitual reactions are normally characterized by the application of our most trustworthy and efficient function; it is an expression of our strength. However, this does not prevent our reacting occasionally in a way that reveals our specific weakness. The predominance of a function leads us to construct or to seek out certain situations while we avoid others, and therefore to have experiences that are peculiar to us and different from those of other people. An intelligent man will make his adaptation to the world through his intelligence, and not in the manner of a sixth-rate pugilist, even though now and then, in a fit of rage, he may make use of his fists. In the struggle for existence and adaptation everyone instinctively uses his most developed function, which thus becomes the criterion of his habitual reactions.» (Carl Jung's lecture (1), 1928).

Carl Jung distinguished four basic psychic functions:
* Sensing
* Feeling 
* Thinking 
* Intuition 

Carl Jung believed that a man identifies himself with his main psychological function: «Very frequently, indeed as a general rule, a man identifies himself more or less completely with the most favoured, hence the most developed, function. It is this circumstance which gives rise to psychological types». (2)
