That's funny... I like Psychology quite a lot, and I'm not particularly enamored of this Jung character and his disproportionate popularity.
Is Jung more popular than Freud there? Because where I live he isn't... It's the opposite , in fact. Not that it matters though,
Your part 'o the world has it right. Jung is good for a lot of things, but (in my opinion) he's been ruined by crackpot reinterpreters. He's well worth reading and has some very interesting things to say (particularly for people with creative mindsets), but never, ever before Freud. He has this large cult that's sort of degenerated his work into a bunch of New Age/pseudomystical hooey, which is probably an American thing.
Basically, if you're gonna do Jung, just do Jung and ignore those who merely riff on his ideas. He's still second to Freud (at best), though. The thing about Freud is that people have built
on his work in very intriguing and important ways, whereas with Jung it seems to have been a downhill trajectory from the original work.
