Psychological Types is the title of the sixth volume in the Princeton / Bollingen edition of the Collected Works of Carl Jung. The original German language edition, "Psychologische Typen", was first published by Rascher Verlag, Zurich in 1921. In the book Jung categorized people into primary types of psychological function.

Jung proposed that there were four main functions of consciousness: Two of them being perceiving functions:

And two being judging functions:

The functions are modified by two main attitude types: extraversion and introversion.

Jung theorized that whichever function dominates consciousness its opposite function is repressed and will characterize unconscious behavior.

The eight psychological types are categorized as follows:

  • Extraverted Sensation
  • Introverted Sensation
  • Extraverted Intuition
  • Introverted Intuition
  • Extraverted Thinking
  • Introverted Thinking
