A number of childhood memories made lifelong impressions on him.
As a boy, he carved a tiny mannequin into the end of the wooden ruler from his pencil case and placed it inside the case.
"Personality Number 2" was a dignified, authoritative and influential man from the past.
Although Jung was close to both parents, he was disappointed by his father's academic approach to faith.
He later reflected that this ceremonial act brought him a feeling of inner peace and security.
Years later, he discovered similarities between his personal experience and the practices associated with totems in indigenous cultures, such as the collection of soul-stones near Arlesheim or the tjurungas of Australia.He created some of the best known psychological concepts, including synchronicity, archetypal phenomena, the collective unconscious, the psychological complex, and extraversion and introversion.Jung was also an artist, craftsman and builder as well as a prolific writer.Jung worked as a research scientist at the famous Burghölzli hospital, under Eugen Bleuler.During this time, he came to the attention of Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis.His father took the boy to be cared for by Emilie Jung's unmarried sister in Basel, but he was later brought back to his father's residence.Emilie Jung's continuing bouts of absence and depression deeply troubled her son and caused him to associate women with "innate unreliability", whereas "father" meant for him reliability but also powerlessness.Jung's research and personal vision, however, made it impossible for him to bend to his older colleague's doctrine, and a schism became inevitable.This division was personally painful for Jung, and it was to have historic repercussions lasting well into the modern day.Emilie was the youngest child of a distinguished Basel churchman and academic, Samuel Preiswerk (1799–1871), and his second wife.Preiswerk was antistes, the title given to the head of the Reformed clergy in the city, as well as a Hebraist, author and editor, who taught Paul Jung as his professor of Hebrew at Basel University.
