    ILI, his descriptions of functions suggest Se Te Ni are favored towards Si and Ti that basically were useless in his eyes.

    Why ILI? I don't really see any explicit signs of Te creative.

    Why that guy gets so perplexed around Ni if he is supposed to be ILI or IEI?

    For typing purposes I recommend reading "The undiscovered Self". It's pretty normal language and non-technical stuff. Fairly easy to read if you can stand the concentrated Ti . I think it shows his LII:ness pretty well.

    People associate analysis of the unconscious with Ni. That's where the Ni typing comes from. It's like typing the "theme" of his work, instead of the man himself. Imo that's a mistake
    A true sense-perception certainly exists, but it always looks as though objects were not so much forcing their way into the subject in their own right as that the subject were seeing things quite differently, or saw quite other things than the rest of mankind. As a matter of fact, the subject perceives the same things as everybody else, only, he never stops at the purely objective effect, but concerns himself with the subjective perception released by the objective stimulus.
    (Jung on Si)

    I think he self-typed as Ti user but people type him INFJ? (MBTI)

    Personally, I think INFJ makes sense. He is very heavy on the symbolism, also could be Te-PoLR possibly on socionics, making him IEI. He has that...I don't know how to describe it...the 'fantastical' imagination i associate with Te PoLR. Absolutely anything is possible sort of feeling. I am very imaginative too, since the Ni is strong, but I am still more drawn towards something 'rational' than he was. He seems to just ignore Te...to me at least.

    LII because of Ni short circuiting his thoughts as other irrational elements might do it. I think it is quite universal reaction from them. When I hear that kind of stuff I think: LII. Therefore your are in my LII category pile.

    LII.

    IEIs are more ethereal, less Ti, someone like Hermann Hesse.

    Yep. I don't really see how would you react positively on Se but I can be quite wrong.

    Didn't Jung report himself as LII? It is a pretty big stretch to believe he could invent this system of typology that reveals something fundamental about the human psyche, and yet mistake his own type. I would love to know how people assessing him as ILI or IEI can reconcile this

    IEI

    in a lot of his works he draws many conclusions from history and the past. very interested in mysterious phenomens and artistically gifted = Ni base

    he was very critical of the empirical and factual approach of psychology, even openly criticising this in his book "psychological types", which indicates to me that he didn't have Te as creative, but as vulnerable function. I also think that he was a harmonising subtype

    Jung was into depth. Very static analysis. Show me IEI who does it years on end completely removed from actual relationship dynamics and focusing on partner (dreamer, reconciler, admirer are the adjectives IEI's have). This specific quality is considered to be IEI's weakness.

    I think he was one of the highly gifted harmonising types that Gulenko talked about. I do not relate to his writing style in any way. LII are not as immersed in the past as he was, and I think (at least from my perspective), that he sometimes has difficulties distinguishing the primary from the secondary, getting to the point of things etc, which makes me think that he doesn't have Ti as base function.

    I can send you his "red book" if you want to. it's a diary of his visions and dreams and gives a lot of insights into his type. makes it imo very clear that he was a Ni dom

    We often don't see ourselves very well, and Jung was no exception to this rule.

    I agree with base. Not sure which one.

    Basically, he was too focused on the past (as others have pointed out), symbolism, dreams etc to have been an LII.

    why ILI(Te as creative function)? like I mentioned, he was highly critical of the empirical and statistical approach to psychology. he openly criticised this in his books. he doesn't have an objective approach to describing things. his insights came from deep observations of his patients and their problems. imo it makes much more sense for him to be an ethical type with strong Fe + Fi.

    I remember talking about his type so pls excuse me if I'm contradicting something I said months or years ago elsewhere. I'm comfortable ruling out creative Te because Ti is the most blatant thing to me as I read his compiled short works. I remember reading his autobiography awhile ago and coming away with "INxx," which, in conjunction with the use of Ti, narrows it down to a couple types. I'd just go with LII, but lack internal cogency wrt how id place his intuition. I guess he did type himself as such, if you care and see his psychological types as equivalent to socionics and stuff.
