Carl Jung was a Swiss psychologist who founded and developed Analytical Psychology, a theory of mind that emphasizes the importance of wholeness for each individual. Jung also developed the concepts of the extraverted and the introverted personality, archetypes, and the collective unconscious. Archetypes are images and themes which have universal meanings across cultures which may show up in dreams, literature, art or religion.
Jung labeled these archetypes the Self, the Persona, the Shadow and the Anima/Animus.
Persona = The persona (or mask) is the outward face we present to the world
Anima/Animus - The animus is the unconscious masculine side of a woman, and the anima is the unconscious feminine side of a man.
The Shadow - The shadow is composed of the elements of ourselves that we consider to be negative. And We do not show this side of the self to the outside world as it can be a source of anxiety or shame.
