Default Re: Adler and Jung

Thank you for the additional, interesting references. While editing one of Adler's unpublished manuscripts, "Differences in Forms of Psychic Compensation," (a lecture given at a physician's conference on April 7, 1931), I came across a rare reference to Jung. Adler mentions Jung's attempt at classifying people into types and then claims a larger view by explain how children will train themselves in any direction that seems promising as a compensation: thinking, emotion, sleeping, sexuality, etc. He states that any "overemphasis" of one function may lead to potential problems or failures. However, according to Adler, these can be prevented if the individual has enough social interest.
