After reviewing our practical and theoretical research, and focusing on Jung's theory as to the influence of the collective unconscious on the individual human psyche, it is essential to examine this issue from the standpoint of the psychology of individual distinctions.
All suppositions presented here have brought us to a better understanding of the contents of the unconscious sphere of the human psyche. Even if we were to accept Jung's theory of "dividing the human psyche", we think it would be one's personal unconscious because the unconscious sphere of the psyche directly controls many physiological reactions. The personal unconscious should be able to tell everything of one's personality by examining it not through collective values, but in the light of its individual archetypes. It should be able to explain everything about a person with respect to his individual perception of the world and of himself, his purpose, his behavior both in social and natural environments, his strategies and tactics, his way of thinking, his unconscious motivations, his needs, emotions, inclinations, preferences, meaning of his existence, etc.
It is obvious that without finding individual archetypal patterns as the basis for human personality, solving any individual or social-collective problems would not be possible since any society consists of individuals, who constantly affect one another.
