What is the collective unconscious?

Our rational side (IQ) is connected to our intuitive side (QE). The latter operates in a more complex and broad framework as it opens to the dimension of the unconscious mind.

Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung, born in 1875, discovered through his work what he called the human “collective unconscious” (as opposed to the “personal unconscious”). An unconscious that encompasses all of humanity and which is the psyche legacy of each human being’s past, comprised by latent memories from our ancestral and evolutionary past which includes our family conflicts as well as gifts (for example for music or business).

This psyche legacy is the complementary side of the human instincts’ legacy. The collective unconscious contains archetypes.
